Rodón furiously slams glove in dugout after giving up homer


Carlos Rodón certainly was not happy after surrendering a two-run homer in the bottom of the second inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. 

D-backs' first baseman Christian Walker led off the inning with a walk, coming around to score on a two-run home run off the bat of Sergio Alcantara three batters later. 

Alcantara's home run was reviewed after it appeared to possibly have hit off the top of the wall, only to be eventually confirmed as a big fly. 

After Rodón retired Alek Thomas to end the inning, he let out his frustrations in the dugout. 

In the following inning, after Wilmer Flores countered with a two-run home run in the top of the third, Rodón surrendered another home run in the bottom half of the inning, a three-run shot off the bat of Walker, giving Arizona a 5-2 lead.

According to Giants PR, Tuesday night marked the first start all season where Rodón surrendered two home runs. 

With the August 2 trade deadline approaching, Rodón's rough outing against Arizona certainly won't help his trade value if San Francisco does make him available in the coming days.
