After allowing two runs in the second inning of Tuesday night’s San Francisco Giants game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Giants starting pitcher Carlos Rodón was quite displeased.

Rodón — an All-Star selection each of the last two years — made his frustration quite clear in the San Francisco dugout after the inning concluded by slamming his glove.

Well, he took the frustration to another level later in the game when he kicked a baseball bat in the dugout.

He probably should’ve saved the tantrum for the tunnel — a la Chris Sale — or clubhouse. Instead, he kicked the bat right into the leg of starting shortstop Thairo Estrada.

Estrada collapsed to the ground in pain, before an apologetic Rodón came over to console him.

Estrada was able to stay in the game, but that leg probably isn’t feeling too great.

Rodón allowed five earned runs — despite 10 strikeouts — over six innings pitched, taking his ERA from 2.95 to 3.18. He at least made an unbelievable defensive play.

The Diamondbacks came away with a 7-3 victory.

Update: Rodón told the media (via Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic), “Unacceptable action. I hit a teammate — probably the nicest teammate on our team. Just a selfish action that is unacceptable and cannot happen and I take every amount of it. It cannot happen. I just feel stupid.”

Estrada told the media that he’s okay and Rodón apologized.
