Naylor completely lost his mind after his game-winning homer in the top of the 11th frame. The first baseman raced around the bases, finishing with a chest pounding, expletive shouting celebration at home plate.
The insane reaction continued as he got to the dugout, with Naylor launching his batting helmet into the concrete wall.
It’s safe to say he was fired up.
And rightfully so. That comeback win got the Gaurdians back above .500 on the season, improving their overall record to 15-14 this year. They’ll look to keep the momentum going on Tuesday.
