Matt Kemp's 12th home run of the season came during a midgame interview with Dave Roberts

Matt Kemp hit his 12th home run of the season on Saturday during the Dodgers' 3-1 win over the Giants. And while he's been putting up some impressive numbers, the dozenth ball to fly over the fence had a lot of commentary on it. Sure, the FOX broadcast was very much present to witness it, but his skipper was the one who added some extra personality to the long ball.
In the bottom of the second inning, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was in the middle of an in-game interview when Kemp smacked a bomb in the first pitch of his at-bat.
Roberts' reaction: Priceless.

"How about that," Roberts said as he cheered with the team and Kemp rounded the bases. "Matt Kemp with what -- his 11th, 12th homer?"
He jokingly made a suggestion to do an interview during the next inning. And why not? That could work.
Roberts then finished it off with a high-five attempt ... on live television.
