Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker had the coolest possible reaction to a home run from the opposing team. In this case, it was Kiké Hernandez.

Hernandez made an excellent diving grab in the bottom of the second inning, and then led off the top of the third with a 448-foot solo bomb. While watching Hernandez’s at-bat, Dusty Baker was on the FOX broadcast talking with Joe Buck and John Smoltz.

At 72 years old, Baker has seen pretty much everything the game of baseball has to offer. He didn’t even seem upset by the matter, but more so just impressed.

Hernandez gave Boston the lead in what’s sure to be a long, back-and-forth series. You have to give credit where it’s due — Baker didn’t show much emotion in the moment, instead staying calm and collected while on live television.

Astros the favored team against the Red Sox in ALCS

With Framber Valdez on the bump, Game 1 seemed like a gimme for Houston, even with Lance McCullers forced out of the series with a forearm strain.

But without McCullers, and now potentially losing Valdez’s first start, the Red Sox hold a huge advantage.

Baker was placed in a less than ideal situation, taking over for A.J. Hinch after the Astros sign-stealing scandal. He’s performed above expectation and then some, with Houston nearly making it to the World Series in the COVID-19 shortened season.
