Bryce Tucker might owe his catcher an apology, despite an awesome, game-saving performance on Wednesday.
The UCF closer took the mound against Miami with the bases-loaded and up 4-0. Tucker was throwing gas and struck out three straight batters. Amped up on sitting down the side, Tucker showed his full emotions before headbutting his catcher.

Incredibly, the catcher took the brunt of the hit, despite wearing full gear. Thankfully, the dude seemed to be OK.
With all that energy when he pulls off an awesome feat like sitting down three straight batters to end a game, I’d hate to see Tucker when he’s angry.
