Kiké Hernández apologizes for dissing Dodgers fans after NLCS Game 3 loss

The next day, Los Angeles Dodgers utility man Kiké Hernández had some more to say. This time, he’s asking for fans to forgive him for dissing them after the Dodgers’ disappointing 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.

The Dodgers were overmatched, flat and lacked energy during their loss and Hernández said as much after the game — blaming his team, the energy in the stadium and fans. His exact quote, per L.A. Times writer Andy McCullough was: “We had no energy. The stadium had no energy. The fans had no energy. Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody who calls themselves Dodgers.”

You can see how that might go over with Dodgers fans, so a day later, Kiké has sent out a long apology from his Twitter account in the hours before Game 4. Here it is:

The whole dissing-the-fans bit was out of character for Hernández, who is often actually THE energy on the team. He’s usually in the middle of the fun. As such, he also issued another signal to Dodger fans before Game 4 and it had a little bit of a different vibe:

Well then. We’ll see Tuesday night in Game 4 if the Dodgers have found their “energy.”

A friendly piece of advice, though, Kiké: If your bat stands up like this for more than four hours, you might want to see a doctor.
