On Monday night, the Giants' Bumgarner retired Puig on a slow roller down the first baseline and celebrated by punching his glove and muttered something that angered Puig.
Puig walked toward Bumgarner, who yelled, "Don't look at me!" Well, Puig kept looking, and both benches emptied to prevent a brawl, as the seventh inning came to a close. (The two players have a history).
Bumgarner was pulled after the seventh with a 1-0 lead. The Dodgers scored two runs in the ninth to win, 2-1.
On Tuesday afternoon, Puig, along with Dodgers teammates Adrian Gonzalez and José De León, showed up at the ballpark in #DONTLOOKATME shirts. From Puig's Twitter:

Gonzalez also posed in the shirts with Kenley Jansen and Justin Turner.

The Dodgers and Giants play again in Los Angeles on Tuesday and Wednesday. They end the season with another three-game series in San Francisco (Sept. 30-Oct. 2). With 12 games to play, the Dodgers lead the N.L. West by six games. The Giants are currently tied with the Cardinals for the second NL Wild Card spot, one game behind the Mets, who hold the first wild-card. Bumgarner is lined up to pitch against the Dodgers on Sept. 30.
