Tyler Glasnow faced one of his toughest opponents yet in the Tampa Bay Rays’ 2-0 win over the Oakland Athletics, but nothing could prepare him for the text he got from his mom after the seventh inning.
After Glasnow saw Kevin Kiermaier’s diving catch in the seventh, he was in such disbelief at his teammates play he was caught on-camera visibly mouthing: “F—ing s–t! Motherf–ker. Every goddamn time. What the f–k,” after his teammate’s play, the New York Post reports.
His mother, Donna, texted him and said: “You’ve got to stop cussing on TV. Like, cover your mouth or something,” he told reporters after the game, per MLB.com.
MLB reports Glasnow was in command from the start against the A’s, cruising through seven innings on 97 pitches and striking out 10 in the Rays’ 2-0 win at Tropicana Field.
