Reds rehash Wick-Votto beef with troll tweet originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Reds second baseman Jonathan India’s three-run home run off Rowan Wick Tuesday helped Cincinnati take the series opener 5-3 over the Cubs.

It also provided the Reds’ official Twitter account an opportunity to have some fun at the expense of Wick and the Cubs.

The Reds tweeted a gif of India’s home run swing, which he followed with a bat flip as he began his trot around the bases. The tweet is captioned “All we said was ‘nice bat flip.’”

It’s a play off an incident between the Cubs and Reds in their series in Cincinnati last month. Reds first baseman Joey Votto flipped his bat after drawing a walk off Wick, and the two then exchanged a few words.

“All I said was nice bat flip,” Wick said after that May 25 game. “I understand he’s (Votto) been in the league a long time, and he can do whatever he wants when he walks.

“On my side, I was not happy at all with the pitches that I threw, so I let the emotions get the best of me,” Wick added. “I got a little frustrated. But I felt like he kind of blew it out of the water a little more than it needed to me.”
