Don’t tell baseball purists, but two baseball players had fun playing the game on Thursday night. Indians third baseman Juan Uribe was on second base with two outs when Keyvius Sampson threw a first-pitch ball to Rajai Davis. Catcher Tucker Barnhart lobbed the ball back to Sampson and Uribe milled around the second base bag waiting for the next pitch.

Second baseman Brandon Phillips saw an opportunity to play a prank on Uribe, so he rushed towards him and applied a fake tag. That startled Uribe, who thought he had inadvertently been tagged out somehow. Phillips flashed his winning smile and pointed at Uribe as if to say “gotcha!” Uribe placed his hand over his heart, essentially saying that Phillips scared him.
