Brett Gardner lost a battle with his helmet as it hit him in the face
Newton's third law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. In other words, forces always come in pairs.

We've all been there. It's frustrating whenever you suffer a narrow defeat in the heat of competition and the agony of defeat is nearly too much to bear. But, we aren't always so lucky as to get a physics lesson for our troubles.
