Spike Lee was lucky enough to snag Mark Teixeira’s thrown bat behind the first-base dugout in the first inning of Sunday’s game at Yankee Stadium.

Here’s the video.

Michael Kay told him to, “Do the right thing and give the bat back” afterwards, but Lee decided he was keeping it and even showed off his left-handed swing in the stands afterwards. Fortunately, there were enough empty seats around to give him plenty room to play.

Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff exited Sunday afternoon’s start against the Diamondbacks in the fourth inning due to abdominal discomfort, the team announced. He threw a pitch to leadoff batter Tim Locastro and left the field with a trainer. Junior Guerra relieved him.

In three-plus innings, Woodruff was on the hook for four runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts. He now carries a 3.75 ERA with a 136/29 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings of work.

Woodruff will undergo testing, which should allow the team to provide an update on his status, likely on Monday.
