Nick Castellanos of the Philadelphia Phillies got into a heated exchange with a reporter after his team’s 6-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs Saturday night.

Castellanos heard boos while going 0-for-4 with a strikeout. He was 0-for-5 against the Cubs Friday night. 

When asked about the boos, Castellanos said he didn’t need to give an opinion and called it a "stupid question."
