Marcus Stroman called John Nogowski a “clown” over a confrontation they had during Friday night’s game.
Stroman was pitching in the bottom of the fifth inning for his New York Mets against the Pittsburgh Pirates. There was a runner on third with two outs and his Mets down 2-1. Nogowski hit a line drive to first that was caught for the final out of the inning. Stroman slapped his glove in celebration, which prompted Nogowski to snap and tell Stroman to stop celebrating. Nogowski felt he hit a hard out and did not think it was something Stroman should have been celebrating.

After the game, Stroman explained the confrontation from his point of view. He said he was happy to get out of the inning and keep his team in the game. But he wasn’t about to let Nogowski come at him.
“I’m never one to let any man talk down on me, especially when it’s not warranted at all. He’s just a clown, man,” Stroman said of Nogowski.
An additional video shows what was said between the players.

Nogowski had a right to be frustrated about his hard hit ball being caught. But he was wrong for starting with Stroman in that case.
The Pirates won the game 4-1. Nogowski went 2-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI. He’s batting .469 since being acquired by Pittsburgh.
This isn’t the first time Stroman’s conduct on the mound has been called into question.
