Washington Nationals’ Victor Robles jabs back at Madison Bumgarner by sporting clown nose

PHOENIX – LeBron James liked the clown nose. Dave Martinez wasn’t that big of a fan.

Sorry, skip, it appears that Washington Nationals outfielder Victor Robles is siding with the NBA superstar on this one.

Robles was caught with a clown nose by dugout cameras Sunday, a day after Arizona pitcher Madison Bumgarner called him a “clown” for briefly admiring his eighth-inning homer in Washington’s 7-2 loss.

James posted the image of Robles with the clown nose on his Instagram story with the caption, “Something I would certainly do!” Robles posted James’ response on his own Instagram story.

Nationals manager Martinez wasn’t as thrilled with Robles’ slight jab after Washington’s 4-3 win on Sunday.

“I did not see it. I heard about it,” Martinez said. “I will talk with him. We are not. It happened, it’s over, I don’t want to see anything like that.”

The incident began on Saturday when Bumgarner took offense at Robles, who was admiring a solo shot that put the Nationals 7-2.

“Clown,” said Bumgarner. “No shame. It’s 7-1, you hit your third homer of the year and you’re acting like Barry Bonds breaking a record. Clean it up. I don’t care about giving up the run. Heck, we won 7-2 or 8-2, whatever it was. It’s frustrating.

“I’m the grumpy old guy. I know. But things like that never happened before.”
