Werth gets mad, walks away during post-game interview

After Thursday night's 3-1 loss to the Phillies, the game that gave the Phillies three of four in the series, Jayson Werth was in  no mood to talk.

Werth already looked pretty frustrated during his post-game interview, but he had enough when a microphone got too close.

Werth asked the reporter to "Get that thing out of my face," before walking away saying "Yeah...I'm good."

The former Phillies' rightfielder was struck out by closer Jonathan Papelbon for the second out in the ninth. Papelbon would go on to retire the side for his 20th save of the season.

With the win, the Phillies pulled to within a game of the .500 mark at 46-47. They now sit 1.5 games behind Washington (47-45) for second place in the National League East and 7.5 games back of the Atlanta Braves (53-39) for first in the division. 

Werth has received a lot of flack from Phillies fans ever since he signed a 7-year, $126 million contract with the Nationals in December 2010.

He had his best years with the Phillies from 2007 to 2010, but hasn't exactly been the outfielder he was in Philadelphia since signing with Washington.
