It was one thing for Jose Bautista to flip his bat after hitting a game-winning HR in the playoffs, but when he did it again last night during a regular season game, it went over like a lead balloon. Bautista’s bat flip after a meaningless HR late in an 8-4 loss against the Braves caused a heated exchange at home plate and both benches to empty. No punches were thrown — unlike last year’s run-in with Texas’ Rougned Odor — but it set up for a tense conclusion to the Atlanta-Toronto series tonight.
