The Cincinnati Reds are taking "Ls" from the Brewers on and off the field.
On Wednesday, the Reds posted a short video feature on Jesse Winker, a 24-year-old outfielder in his second year with the team, who always gets an extra "L" put in his name to make it sound like Winkler.

Since Milwaukee is known for Henry Winkler's character "The Fonz" from Happy Days, the Reds compared Winker to Winkler saying, "Reminder from the home of The Fonz: Jesse Winker doesn't take L's"
In response, the Brewers posted a quote tweet of Tuesday night's 2-0 final score with a chin-scratching emoji.

Nothing else needed to be said. And judging by the comments, Brewers fans loved it.

It's not the first time this week the Brewers got a little snarky on Twitter. On Sunday, they went after the Cubs and other teams that canceled games because of bad weather.
