Anibal Sanchez says hi to Marco Scutaro in a unique way

Detroit's Anibal Sanchez and San Francisco's Marco Scutaro might be on separate teams, but the Venezuelan natives will always feel a special bond.

When Scutaro stepped up to the plate for his first at-bat during Game 3 on Saturday night, Sanchez flashed a unique "hello" to his countrymate by sticking out his tongue before throwing the first pitch.

While Scutaro acknowledged the gesture with a tip of his hat, it's too bad he didn't stick out his tongue in return, it would have made for quite the hilarious at-bat. Maybe if Sergio Romo was batting, there would have been a different result.
