In last night’s Orioles-Diamondbacks game, Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt hit a solo shot into the left-field stands to tie the game in the bottom of the 9th inning.
And then he did it again in the bottom of the 11th inning to win the game with a walk-off home run.
Which of course led to some post-game interview hijinks from his teammates. It started with a bucket of bubble gum.
And then a second bucket of gum, which, if we are reading the Constitution correctly, officially makes Paul Goldschmidt the king of Dubble Bubble.
And just for good measure, they doused him with water, because why not?
And that’s how he finished the interview: soaking wet, with two buckets on his head and a smile on his face.
