Rougned Odor didn’t appreciate Jose Bautista’s slide into second base, so the infielder for the Texas Rangers did something about it. Within seconds, Odor hit Bautista with a devastating punch that the Toronto Blue Jays outfielder never smelled coming.
Let’s give Bautista credit for staying conscious after taking that punch to the face. A weaker man would have been knocked out.
As for Odor, there’s not much to say other than that was a hell of a punch – especially considering that Bautista was wearing a helmet. It required pinpoint accuracy along with that overwhelming power. That’s exactly how you win a fight in one punch.
As expected, Bautista was widely mocked on social media. He even got the Crying Jordan treatment.
