Two of October’s best features collided in Los Angeles on Tuesday night: postseason baseball and candy. But the reasons were not enjoyable for Dodgers’ starting pitcher Rich Hill.

Hill went five solid innings against the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 4 of the NLCS, but was unable to hold the Dodgers’ 1-0 lead in the top of the fifth. Milwaukee pinch-hitter Domingo Santana stayed on a Hill curveball on a 1-2 count, and placed it into the right-center field gap for a game-tying double.

Hill was at least able to escape the remainder of the fifth with no more damage. And allowing just one run over five innings is a job well done.

But the 38-year-old southpaw was clearly mad at himself for blowing the lead in what’s essentially a must-win game for Los Angeles (trailing 2-1 in the series). So, he took his anger out on the candy selection in the Dodgers’ dugout:

The candy at least appeared to remain in the wrappers, and we assume Yasiel Puig will eat all of it.

Happy early Halloween.
