San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler and pitcher Jack Little broke out during the team’s 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.
The fight broke out in the eighth inning when Kapler went to the mound to remove Littel, who wanted to remain in the game to face Matt Olsson. Littel was replaced by Scott Alexander, but as he handed the ball to Kapler and walked off the mound, he had few choice words.

The broadcast then showed Kapler walking back into the dugout and calling Littel into the clubhouse tunnel to talk to the pitcher. Littel allowed Dansby Swanson a two-run single before Austin Riley was taken off the field in double play.

“It was purely out of frustration in my performance, and it turned out to be in a disrespectful way to him,” Littel explained after the game. “Obviously that wasn’t my intention at all. So it’s on me. I’ve already been to his office and that’s it. … I can assure you on my part that this won’t happen again.”

Kapler said he and Littel discussed how the two might communicate better in the future.
“I’m happy to discuss those things with the players and there’s a way to do that. I think Jack understands that,” Kapler said.
