Hernandez thoroughly confused Beltre with an inside breaking ball on an 0-2 count, leaving Beltre with what can only be described as a silly-looking check swing and a dubious grin on his face after strike three.


Felix Hernandez gives Adrian Beltre the business

What ensued after is the stuff of rivals who genuinely enjoy each other’s company. After Beltre froze for a moment to contemplate what had just happened, Hernandez made eye contact and keeled over laughing.

Heranandez then walked with Beltre toward the Rangers dugout, pointing out the proper home for the vanquished batter.

Hernandez appeared to have some friendly words of encouragement for Beltre along the way.
