HOUSTON – Houston Astros pitcher Ken Giles punched himself in the face after Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning. 

To make matters worse, the homer came in the ninth inning of a 0-0 game which led to an Astros loss.

Giles was seen slamming his glove against his chest and throwing a bat on the ground in the dugout before kicking it.

Justin Verlander, a star pitcher for the Astros, threw one of the best outings of his career, with 14 strikeouts in the first eight innings.

Maybe that’s another reason Giles decided to punch himself in the face?
