Yankees' Brett Gardner Tees Off on Recycling Bin After Striking Out

New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner looked at a called strike three in the sixth inning of Wednesday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. After not swinging at the baseball, he took out his frustrations on a recycling bin.

Despite being in a 10-for-26 stretch with four home runs over his last six games, the streaking veteran lost his cool with his team down 6-5. An inning later, he and his teammates seized the lead with a three-run rally.

Courtesy of YES Network, a calmer Gardner discussed the incident after the game:

Sure, it's better than punching a wall and breaking his hand. But some breathing exercises could have saved the helpless recycling bin.
