James McDonald Records An Out, Gives Himself A Gatorade Shower (Video)

Gatorade showers have become synonymous with championship celebrations, but it appears as though Pittsburgh Pirates starter James McDonald is trying to start a new trend.

After recording the final out in the seventh inning, McDonald’s was given high-fives all around in the dugout, as his night on the mound was over.  He handed his bullpen a 6-4 lead, and in his eyes, that was enough of a reason to celebrate with a self-Gatorade shower.

While the celebration was humorous and all, it may have come just a bit too early, as the Pirates bullpen gave up three runs in the top of the eighth inning, blowing their two-run lead, en route to the 7-6 loss.

Let this be a lesson to you all.  Never celebrate with a Gatorade shower before the game is officially over.  You would think that the 26-year-old McDonald would know this after watching the Bluegrass Miracle.

I guess not.
