NESN reporter Guerin Austin took a cork to the face during a postgame interview in the clubhouse. Mookie Betts was struggling to pop a bottle while Austin was interviewing him and fellow Red Sox star J.D. Martinez when all of the sudden he got it open and hit her with it.
The look on Mookie’s face says it all.
