Mariners DH Nelson Cruz Gets Hit by Pitch, Jokingly Pretends to Storm Mound

Never change, Nelson Cruz.

On Sunday, Cruz's former Texas Rangers teammate, White Sox pitcher Derek Holland, plunked him in the top of the first inning. The Seattle Mariners designated hitter began walking to first base before faking a charge to the mound. 

Holland didn't flinch as Cruz began heading his way, and both players smiled at one another afterward. Cruz would have the last laugh, however, as he hit a game-winning home run to in the 10th inning to beat the White Sox, 7-6. 

It's nice to see a player not overreact to getting beaned. Isn't that right, Bryce Harper
