The Detroit Tigers took down the Pittsburgh Pirates in the opening game of a doubleheader Wednesday.

The 3-2 win helped Detroit land their eighth win of the year, while sending the Pirates back with their 14th loss of the season. The game was a comedy of errors for Pittsburgh, who’s poor fielding led to a trio of unearned runs.

In all, the Pirates notched three errors on the day, with two in the fifth inning helping the Tigers plate three two-out runs. The ugly performance erased a fantastic day from Pittsburgh pitching.

While the defensive miscues ultimately led to the loss, it was a swinging strikeout from outfielder Cole Tucker that made headlines.

In the seventh inning of action, the Pirates slugger stepped up to the dish with his team down a run. On a 1-2 slider, Tucker was sent spinning to the ground, effectively ending his at bat and the frame.

When the game was over, the Detroit social media team took a moment to jab at the young outfielder.

For those that don’t know, Cole Tucker is the boyfriend of High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens.

When Detroit landed the 3-2 win, they took a moment to troll Tucker on his embarrassing moment at the plate with a hilarious reference to the movie.

The quote reads, “I want to remember this summer, but not like this.”

Obviously, it was a forgetful at bat for Tucker, who’s now hitting just .156 on the year. Hopefully, his summer gets a little better in the coming weeks.
