ATLANTA (AP) San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy has posted only six tweets since joining Twitter in November 2017.

He may start spending more time on social media after enjoying the reaction from Braves right-hander Brandon McCarthy and McCarthy’s wife, Amanda, to his latest post.

Bochy told reporters before Saturday night’s 11-2 win over Atlanta that he had trouble finding a parking space at SunTrust Park. After the game, he tweeted : ”I’ll park wherever they want me to if I get 11 runs.”

McCarthy retained his sense of humor after giving up a career-high eight runs and 12 hits over 3 1/3 innings. He replied to Bochy: ”I gave up all those hits and runs out of respect for you after hearing about parking snafu.” Amanda McCarthy then replied: ”Brandon, that’s not how you do baseball.”

Bochy laughed when told of the posts. He said he used Uber to get to the ballpark on Sunday.
