In the second inning of a 4-0 game between the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros, Mike Zunino launched a two-run homer to extend the M's lead, which they would eventually hold on to win 7-1.
One Astros fan, known as Astros Rants on Twitter, took to social media to voice his disappointment about Mike Zunino watching his home run momentarily after hitting the ball. We don't know whether or not the catcher was watching if the ball was fair or foul or simply admiring the shot, but his look was no worse than any other home run trot by an average major-leaguer.
Watch the clip below as @AstrosRants complains, perhaps sarcastically, about Zunino's home run and how the Astros never, ever do what Zunino did.
Film Room Discussion: #Mariners nobody, Mike Zunino hits a HR.— Astros Rants (@AstrosRants) June 6, 2018
Were his actions afterwards acceptable?
When is this going to stop happening in our great sport?
Why does it always seem to happen against the Astros?
Should he be drilled?

As hilarious as the video and commentary is, especially for Mariners fans to hear his complaining, perhaps the best part of this story are the replies to the tweet, making fun of the guy's comments.

Keuchel watched it longer than Zunino. He wanted to make sure it didn’t hit his car in the family parking lot.— Blake Hempstead (@blakeahssports) June 6, 2018
