Fox Sports might have gotten their last interview with Dusty Baker. 

The Astros’ manager was in the middle of an interview with play-by-play announcer Joe Buck at the top of the third inning on Friday night when Kiké Hernández blasted a 448-foot home run to tie it up 1-1 during Game 1 of the ALCS. 

As soon as Hernández touched the ball, Baker uttered “Oh lord.”

Buck shouted that the ball was up and out to which Baker responded, “Yeah, way out.”

He also added that Hernández is having the week of his life. “I don’t know about the week of his life, but he’s had a pretty good first three innings,” Baker said as he interrupted the celebration. 

Hernandez had four hits, and hit another solo home run in the ninth inning.

Following the Astros 5-4 win, Baker was asked about his reaction to the first of Hernández’s two home runs.

“Oh, it was terrible.” Baker jokingly stated during the postgame press conference. “I blame Fox for that because invariably when you are doing it live, something usually always happens.”

The win gave the Astros a 1-0 lead. Game 2 is scheduled for Saturday at 4:20 p.m. ET in Houston.
