Loser Padres fan apparently tries to hit Cody Bellinger with beer can
That’s a series-opening win over the San Diego Padres for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have the best record in baseball and appear unstoppable in the early going.
Julio Urías was great through five innings and the bullpen handled the rest of the way. The Pads registered just one run on four hits and three walks. They struck out 10 times. Ah, so that explains why the folks in San Diego were a bit rowdy on Friday night.
In the bottom of the sixth before the Dodgers broke the game open to take home the 6-1 triumph, Cody Bellinger tracked down a fly ball in left-center field for the first out of the inning. That was apparently “it” for a certain Padres fan in attendance at Petco Park.
Right after Belli hauled in the catch after a run to the warning track, a beer can flew into the frame, though thankfully nowhere near him. Nice throw, idiot! Really looking like the Padres out there! Are we sure that wasn’t the Error King Fernando Tatis Jr. throwing that onto the field of play from the crowd?
It’s sure representative of his accuracy. We kid. In all seriousness, it was probably some loser Padres fan who still can’t come to terms with his/her team continuing to be the Dodgers’ little brother until the end of time.

In one fell swoop, the Padres also helped awaken the dead bats of Mookie Betts and Max Muncy, both of whom combined for four hits, two homers and five RBI after contributing virtually … nothing across the first 12 games of the year.
Thanks, Friars! We can always count on you for a bounce-back, regardless of the magnitude. Bellinger might’ve gone 0-for-4, but he’s been a pleasant surprise for the Dodgers after his dreadful 2021 campaign. He’s OPSing .816 and has a 137 OPS+ so far. Look for more of that on Saturday and Sunday after this beer can stunt. Any time a little NL West foe pokes the bear, you know what happens. The Dodgers almost always respond accordingly.
If Padres fans are doing this in late April with a 9-6 record, what in the world will Petco Park look like in the midst of their inevitable second-half collapse?
When that time comes, Bellinger will probably be enjoying a few beers himself, so save the free booze for August and September, San Diego.
