Dodgers’ Kike Hernandez Calls Out Fans For Booing

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Kike Hernandez was upset with fans at Dodger Stadium. Not only was he upset with how they played during Monday’s 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, but also with how Dodgers fans supported the home team during the Game 3 defeat.

“We had no energy,” Hernandez told the Los Angeles Times. “The stadium had no energy. The fans had no energy. Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody who calls themselves Dodgers.”

Hernandez also took issue with the crowd’s treatment of catcher Yasmani Grandal, who was booed during the game after a passed ball scored a run for the Brewers.

“It sucks that there’s nothing going on in the stands, since the first inning when [Ryan] Braun hit that double, the stadium’s kind of quiet for the rest of the evening,” Hernandez said. “And it sucks that they got loud just to show up Yasmani. He’s trying his best. Catchers have a lot going on.”

Faithful fans also let Grandal have it with chorus of boos, including chanting “We want Austin! We want Austin,” for backup catcher Austin Barnes.

“If they think that they can do it, then go ahead, put on your gear and go catch 99 with breaking balls that have a lot of movement,” Hernandez said. “He’s been one of the best catchers in the game for a while now. He’s having a little bit of a rough patch, which we all — as humans, as baseball players — go through.”

The Dodgers will look to rebound for game 4 on Tuesday night.
