Watch: Astros’ Yuli Gurriel Appears to Mock Dodgers’ Yu Darvish by Making Eyes Slanted After Homer

Houston Astros first baseman Yulieski “Yuli” Gurriel opened up the scoring in Game 3 of the World Series by homering off of Los Angeles Dodgers starter Yu Darvish in the bottom of the second inning.

Following the homer, Gurriel can be seen in the dugout laughing with teammates while using his hands to make his eyes slanted, appearing to mock the Japanese Darvish.

After the game, Darvish called Gurriel’s actions “disrespectful.”

“I’m sure the Astros have Asian fans, too,” said Darvish, via Orange County Register.

The Astros went on to win 5-3, moving them ahead 2-1 in the best of 7 series.
