White Sox star Lucas Giolito was so furious that Twins 3rd baseman Josh Donaldson made a “sticky” quip during their game Tuesday … he straight-up called the Minnesota player “a f***ing pest.”
The scene on the diamond was pretty wild … after Donaldson homered off Giolito in the 1st inning — he celebrated by insinuating the Chicago pitcher had previously used sticky substances to throw better.
Josh Donaldson after a home run, to Lucas Giolito:
“He’s a f***ing pest,” Giolito said. “It’s kind of a classless move. If you’re going to talk s***, talk s*** to my face. Don’t go cross home plate and do all that. Just come to me.”
Giolito continued, “We won. The W is next to my name. They’re in last place.”
Tuesday’s contest was the first of a three-game series between the Twins and Sox this week, and while Giolito won’t throw again against Minnesota in the next 2 days … the series just got a whole lot more interesting regardless.
