Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia know that a team that slides together, scores together
Bogaerts, Pedroia slide into home at same time
As Boston's double-play combination, Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia are used to doing things as a pair. And, really, baserunning can be a pretty lonely endeavor sometimes -- you're out there all by yourself, with no one to really chat with (unless a friendly fielder is kind enough to go along for the ride with you).
So when Bogaerts found himself running right behind his second baseman after a David Ortiz double on Friday, he took the opportunity to go say hi. Pedroia, however, did not seem to appreciate the advances:
Either that, or Bogaerts and Pedroia were living out those frantic final seconds of a Mario Kart race, in which you're right behind Yoshi but the finish line's right there and you only have green shells and OH COME ON. You know, one of those.
