Frustrated Justin Upton Throws Helmet, Hits Yonder Alonso in the Head

One of the best parts about baseball is watching pissed off players slam stuff in the dugout. Phones, coolers, helmets, etc. — you name it, I want to see someone destroy it. (Ideally that someone being David Ortiz.)
Padres outfielder Justin Upton attempted to fulfill those wishes Saturday night after getting picked off by John Axford to end the eighth inning. Considering the Rockies led by just one run, it was a pretty big gaff by Upton, so upon returning to the dugout he flung his helmet… right at Yonder Alonso’s head.
Suffice it to say, Yonder was pretty pissed:


After the game, Justin acknowledged that he needs to work on his helmet tossing:


On Yonder’s end, he’s pretty much over it:


The fact that the Padres rallied in the ninth inning to win probably helped Yonder chill a bit.
