Brian Wilson Throws Water Cooler: Giants Closer Unleashes Frustration After Blown Save (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson lost his cool during Friday night's game against the Detroit Tigers after giving up a game-tying RBI single in the eighth inning and another run in the ninth.

Even though the Giants took a 4-1 lead heading into the bottom of the ninth, Wilson let three of the first four batters he faced reach base and gave up another run before getting taken out of the game. Once he got into the dugout, he unleashed his frustration out on the water cooler.

"Well, you know, give myself 30 seconds to absolutely lose it, then come back and be part of the team and watch Affeldt close it out," Wilson said after the game. "You come back to reality and root on the guy who's going out to save your ass, and he did a marvelous job of it."
