Latos, Bruce shrug off apparent argument
NEW YORK -- Television cameras from the Mets' broadcast caught a brief moment of apparent disharmony in the Reds' dugout in the midst of their 7-4 victory on Wednesday afternoon.
Following the bottom of the fifth inning, when the Mets tied it at 2 on Daniel Murphy's sacrifice fly, Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos and right fielder Jay Bruce had an animated discussion at the far end of the dugout.
Neither player would go into detail what was said between them.
"Next question," Latos said tersely.
"That's not really important," Bruce said. "But no, it was not about the sac fly."
On the sac fly, Bruce had to make the catch on the run, and he made an off-target throw up the third-base line.
Bruce discounted the situation between innings as not a big deal.
"Everything is fine," Bruce said. "It happens all the time. It's a non-story, really."
"I was on the other end of the dugout if they did [argue]," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It happens all the time. If they did, it's certainly nobody's business but ours."
