Jose Bautista asks the Red Sox bullpen what's up while robbing a home run
Saturday afternoon's Blue Jays-Red Sox game had a lot at stake. Toronto was trying to win its tenth in a row, just the fifth time in team history they've rattled off that many wins. Boston, conversely, was hoping to avoid extending its losing streak to five -- the longest of the season.
So, yeah, a lot of layers. And in the middle of it all, while the Jays held a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the third, Rusney Castillo lifted a pitch to deep right-center field, heading straight for the Red Sox bullpen. Jose Bautista gave chase, leapt and doubled-over the outfield wall to rob Castillo of a home run.
He paused for the briefest of moments while hanging onto the wall, as if to say "what's up?" to the Sox bullpen.
Robbing a home run in front of your opponents' bullpen: That's what's up.
