Watch: Cliff Lee Ends Post Game Interview With a Loud Fart

Philadelphia Phillies starter Cliff Lee’s return from a two-month stint on the disabled list couldn’t have gone much worse. Lee went out and threw one of the worst games of his career (12 hits and 6 runs in less than 6 innings), but his post game interviews ended on an even worse note.
