San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Carlos Rodon clearly wasn't happy with his performance against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday. The All-Star gave up five earned runs to the sub-.500 DBacks across 6.0 innings and ended up with his sixth loss on the year as a result.

In a moment of frustration, Rodon was caught on video kicking a bat in the dugout during Tuesday's game, which ended up hitting teammate Thairo Estrada.

It clearly wasn't enjoyable for Estrada as he fell to the ground in immediate pain. The friendly fire caught the attention of Wilmer Flores in the dugouout as well, who stood nearby and threw his arms up in annoyance with Rodon's actions.

Thankfully Rodon snapped out of his mood and immediately rushed to help Estrada up, but there was really no need for this reckless behavior in the first place.

It's been tough sledding for Rodon and the Giants as a whole lately. San Francisco has dropped six straight games, while Rodon has given up at least five earned runs in back-to-back outings.

This team needs avoid taking their frustrations out on each other if they're to rally from this losing skid. They head into Wednesday's matchup as the favorite (-116) on the moneyline to defeat Arizona, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds.
