Alex Bregman is a professional trash talker, and his Instagram account offers definitive proof.
After Sunday's 7-5 loss against the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, the Houston Astros third baseman wasted no time getting ready for his next challenge. With Boston's Game 3 starter being right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, Bregman turned to some familiar footage for motivation.
When Eovaldi was still with the Tampa Bay Rays, he had a rough outing at Minute Maid Park - the site for Game 3 of the ALCS. In the bottom of the sixth inning, George Springer, Bregman, and Jose Altuve hit three consecutive home runs off Eovaldi.
Bregman decided it was time to offer a little reminder for his next opponent as the series shifts to Houston. Game 3 is scheduled for Tuesday at 5:09 p.m., ET.
