So, yeah, there was probably a hacker involved.

Deadspin has the rundown after someone had some fun with the Facebook pages of several MLB teams on Thursday.

source:  Unfortunately, the hacker got less original and more profane after that, though Free Pitbull Night at Marlins Park was pretty funny.

It’s not the first time that MLB Facebook pages have been hacked, but this does appear to the first time someone has hit multiple pages at once. Then again, something like this was bound to happen with all of the pages accessible by the same password, “seligsbarber.”

Brandon Crawford homers off brother-in-law Gerrit Cole

You can’t pick your family and no one knows that better than Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. His sister Amy married Astros starter Gerrit Cole in November 2016, so the two players are brothers-in-law.

The two players have matched up against each other 18 times in the past, as Cole spent his first five seasons in the National League with the Pirates. Cole often won that battle, holding Crawford to four hits — all singles — in 18 plate appearances.

Crawford finally got the better of Cole on Tuesday night, hitting a line drive into the appropriately-named Crawford Boxes at Minute Maid Park for a two-run home run, cutting the Astros’ lead to 5-2.
