Astros reliever Ken Giles wasn't happy when he was taken out of Houston's matchup with the Athletics Tuesday.

He was so unhappy, he appeared to yell an expletive at Astros manager A.J. Hinch on his way off the mound. It's unclear what exactly was said, but he certainly had some choice words for his manager. Twitter user @ScottEMarvin first pointed the incident out.

Giles came in with a 4-0 lead in the top of the ninth against the A's, but allowed three straight singles to load the bases and was promptly removed for Hector Rondon.

Hinch commented on the incident post-game.

"I did hear about it," he said, via the Houston Chronicle. "He was pretty mad in the dugout. I don't know man. That stuff happens in the heat of battle. I'll have to look at it.

"He can let me know if it was directed at me. I didn't hear anything. You can certainly understand I'll address it. It if turns out it was at me, we'll talk about it."

The first incident of note came May 2 when the reliever allowed a three-run, go-ahead homer to Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez and was saddled with a loss. He promptly punched himself in the face on his way off the mound.
