Even when Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre reaches a milestone, people still want to mess with him. 

It's no secret that Beltre doesn't like when people touch his head. Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera is well aware of that fact, having patted the Dominican when the teams met earlier this season.

However, when Detroit visited Arlington on Tuesday, Cabrera was back at it.

Beltre had just picked up the 2,500th hit of his career, which meant he was about to receive a standing ovation from the crowd. When he took off his helmet to salute the supporters, Cabrera took the opportunity to mess with his pal.

Of course, Beltre didn't let it go unpunished. The Rangers third baseman gave the Tigers first baseman a little tap below the belt to even the score.
