Ken Giles punched himself in the face Tuesday after allowing a home run.

Giving up a home run isn’t fun, and we often see some pretty intense displays of emotion after that. That rarely involves a pitcher punching himself in the face, but that’s what Houston Astros’ closer Ken Giles (who lost that role last postseason, but has since earned it back at least partially) did after New York Yankees’ catcher Gary Sanchez hit a three-run homer off him to break a scoreless tie in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday:

Let’s take another look at that:

Yep, that’s a pretty good shot to one’s own face. The bat-slam afterwards is more standard, but the punch is something, especially as it’s seemingly hard enough to make Giles’ head spin. And this wound up being the decisive moment in a 4-0 Yankees’ win (they’d add another run later in the inning). And Twitter had jokes:

This is appropriate revenge for Sanchez, too, as Giles struck him out looking (on a controversial call) the night before:

On Tuesday, Sanchez got the last laugh. Well, one of the last laughs. The internet’s still laughing.
