Dodgers fan toasts Matt Moore losing no-hit bid with dual middle fingers (vid)
San Francisco Giants lefty Matt Moore came about as close as a pitcher can get to tossing a no-hitter, allowing a bloop single to right field to Corey Seager with two-outs in the ninth inning. And a Los Angeles Dodgers fan had a pretty outlandish reaction to his beloved team narrowly avoiding the embarrassment.
Yep, as cameras panned the thrilled crowd in Dodger Stadium, said Dodgers fan was seen celebrating the failed no-hit bid by Moore with a double-barrelled middle-finger salute.

There you go. Sure, the Dodgers weren’t no-hit, but the team went on to lose by a score of 4-0. Further, the win allowed the Giants to creep within two games of the NL West-leading Dodgers. While the double-middle-finger-waving fan could temporarily celebrate a small victory, a bigger battle is still being waged.
