The Houston Astros roughed up Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish for four runs in just 1 2/3 innings during Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night.
Houston’s first run came on a home run from Yuli Gurriel in the second inning, and when Gurriel came back to the dugout, the MLB international cameras caught him making what appears to be a slant-eye gesture mocking Darvish, who is half-Japanese and half-Iranian.

You can be sure that Gurriel will be asked about it after the game.
UPDATE: MLB plans to interview Gurriel and will consider discipline. Yu Darvish also spoke to the media and called the gesture “disrespectful” and “offensive to everybody.”
