Matt Garza Attacks Eric Sogard and His Wife on Twitter

There’s insulting someone on the field, and then there’s insulting someone on Twitter.

Texas Rangers starter Matt Garza did both on Saturday to Eric Sogard and his wife, Kaycee, after Sogard laid down a squeeze bunt late in the game to score a run.

After Garza threw Sogard out on the play, which took place in the seventh inning, the Rangers pitcher appeared to yell “F—-ing P—-y” at Sogard.

You’d think that would be enough, but Garza then decided to go after Sogard and his wife on Twitter.

Sogard’s wife simply tweeted about Sogard not responding to name-calling:

Garza answered with a flurry of tweets on a protected Twitter account, which is not confirmed by Twitter but according to the San Francisco Chronicle, it is indeed Garza:

Wow! All that over a sacrifice bunt?

It was a clean play as well, one that is executed fairly often in the big leagues. Most importantly, it knocked in a crucial insurance run for the A’s late in the game to give them a two-run advantage.

No matter what Garza said, it’s the A’s and Sogard that got the last laugh:
