Found September 12, 2013 on Diehardsport:
The last start of the season for Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Hernandez won’t be best known for his nasty stuff on the mound. After hitting his first home-run on the season during the bottom of the sixth inning, the 21-year-old Hernandez, who is the favorite to win the N.L. Rookie of the Year award, trotted around first and second base and then proceeded to spit on third. Hernandez stare-down just a bit dot gif. Benches cleared after Hernandez and the Braves’ Brian McCann share some words. The bad blood between the two teams all started during the top of the 6th inning with Hernandez and the Braves’ Chris Johnson getting into a yelling match. Hernandez (12-6, 2.19 ERA) did apologize for the incident in a press conference following the game. “I said, ‘I’m really sorry, I’m embarrassed and that’s something that won’t ever happen again,’” Fernandez said. “McCann said, ‘Hey, man, you’re a kid but you’re in the big leagues. You need to do what big leaguers do.’” Video of the whole event:  You may recall that a similar thing happened back in August when Bryce Harper admired a home run and the Braves taking exception to it.  Moving along.
