Padres’ Fernando Tatis Jr. trolls Dodgers’ Trevor Bauer by covering eye on home run trot

Fernando Tatis Jr. added juice to the Padres-Dodgers rivalry Saturday night by expertly trolling LA starter Trevor Bauer.

Tatis got his chance when he led off the game with a home run against the right-hander at Dodger Stadium. As Tatis got between first and second base, he turned to the Padres’ dugout and . . .

Well, see for yourself:

Yes, Tatis was letting everyone know that he remembered Bauer pitching with one eye closed against the Padres in spring training.

Bauer told reporters after that outing that he was having fun and testing himself.

“I figured if they can’t score off of me with one eye open, it will be difficult to score off me with two eyes open,” he said. “Just having a little bit of fun. There’s definitely a reason behind it. If I wanted to share, I would have already.”

The Padres were seeing Bauer for the second time in a week Saturday. He held them to one run over six innings Sunday in San Diego.

Saturday’s game was also the sixth meeting between the NL West clubs in the season’s first month. LA won the first two games but San Diego took the next three.
