Video Of Houston Manager's Home Run Reaction Goes Viral

Dusty Baker lived a modern manager’s nightmare on Friday night: Conducting a live TV interview while the opposition dealt his club a crushing blow, reports USAToday.

The Houston Astros manager, never a dull conversationalist, was live on Fox when Boston’s Kiké Hernandez crushed a game-tying home run in the top of the third inning. Baker let slip what he considered a mild expletive – “Oh lord” – almost as the ball left Hernandez's bat and soared into the Minute Maid Park seats.

He had a bad vibe about going on national television at such a crucial juncture in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.

“I blame Fox for that,” Baker said after his team rallied for a 5-4 victory to claim a 1-0 ALCS lead.

"Because invariably," Baker continued, "when you are doing it live something usually always happens. My mom is watching the game, so – really, I think I said 'oh, God.' "
