Houston Astros closer Roberto Osuna was bombarded by a loud chorus of boos during Game 3 of the World Series at Nationals Park on Friday.

As the 24-year-old trotted to the mound to pitch the ninth inning with the visiting Astros leading the Washington Nationals, a sold-out crowd of 43,867 let him have it.

Osuna brushed off the negative attention by sitting down the heart of the Nationals' lineup in the ninth, including a contest-ending strikeout of the hot-hitting Juan Soto.

"I was ready for it, I really was, just because of everything that happened," Osuna said of being booed, according to USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale. "But I wasn't going to let it affect me. I just wanted to do my job."

Osuna's arrest in May 2018 for the alleged assault of his son's mother (the charge has since been withdrawn in court) returned to the public spotlight this week following a clubhouse incident involving former Astros assistant general manager Brandon Taubman.

The Astros fired Taubman on Thursday after he shouted at three female reporters - one of whom was wearing a purple anti-domestic violence bracelet - about Houston's acquisition of Osuna following the team's ALCS win over the New York Yankees.

"Thank God we got Osuna! I'm so f------ glad we got Osuna!" Taubman repeatedly yelled in the Astros' clubhouse after the win, according to the original report by Sports Illustrated's Stephanie Apstein.

Houston Astros pitcher Roberto Osuna pitches in the ninth inning of a baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto on Monday Sept. With the Astros holding onto a 5-3 lead Monday, Osuna got the call out of the bullpen — like Astros manager A.J. Hinch said he would.

The Astros issued a series of statements addressing the incident, most recently including an apology to both Sports Illustrated and Apstein after originally accusing them of fabricating the story.

Apstein has since asked the Astros to retract their original statement, which they have not yet done, while MLB has opened an investigation into the incident.

Osuna addressed the situation following Friday night's victory and said he wasn't in the clubhouse when the incident occurred.

"I didn't say anything," Osuna explained. "I wasn't there. I don't know what really happened that night. All I know is I got involved in something that I didn't have anything to do with.

"It kind of sucks. But it is what it is, right?"
