After outburst, Giants pitcher gets his own short-lived meme

22 Oct

After Kansas City Royals infielder Omar Infante hit a two-run homer Wednesday night in Game 2 of the World Series, San Francisco Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland yelled from the mound at the first runner to cross home, catcher Salvador Perez.

(See the whole thing here.)

Infante’s home run gave the Royals at 7-2 lead in the sixth inning. Nearly 24 hours earlier, this tweet referenced the Hunter Pence meme that has followed the Giants outfielder most of the season.

And then it happened: Others picked up on the hashtag.
