A mariachi band played in the Red Sox clubhouse on Cinco de Mayo

On Sunday, the Red Sox beat the White Sox, 9-2, on the strength of a seven-run outburst in the eighth inning. It was a pretty solid Cinco de Mayo for the club, which won three out of the four games in the series.

That's fine and all, and was the ultimate goal of the team's trip to Chicago, but their Cinco de Mayo was also highlighted by a pregame mariachi band, which set up shop and serenaded the group in the clubhouse:

Each Cinco de Mayo for the past few seasons, the White Sox have hosted bands from Mariachi Herencia de México, an ensemble of musicians comprised of Chicago Public School students, to play music for fans and perform the national anthem to mark the holiday. They even met White Sox manager Rick Renteria, a big fan of the band, before Sunday's game as well.

Judging by them also showing up in the Red Sox clubhouse, it seems it was quite an eventful day for everybody.

I have to wonder if this is the last time we'll see a mariachi band in the Red Sox clubhouse this season, too ...
