Dodgers manager Don Mattingly certainly can't be upset with utility player Kike Hernandez for not giving his all while facing Reds flame-thrower Aroldis Chapman.

With the Dodgers looking to tack on a few insurance runs in top of the ninth in their 1-0 win over the Reds on Thursday, Hernandez stepped up to the plate to face Chapman with a runner on first and no outs.

Facing one of the hardest-throwing pitchers in the history of the game, Hernandez fervently loaded up for a 1-0 pitch.

Likely expecting Chapman's triple-digit fastball on the pitch, Hernandez was completely fooled by Chapman's 97-mph slider, and lost his balance (and his helmet) while trying to readjust his overzealous swing.

Hernandez couldn't help but crack a smile immediately after the incident, and had fun with the gaffe after the game on social media.

The coincidental aspect of Hernandez's blunder is that he posted a photo earlier in the day caressing a bunch of bananas in celebration of Banana Lovers Day.
