twins white sox punch

What is going on here, you ask? An Hollywood-caliber acting job.

Minnesota’s Chris Colabello hit a home run on Friday afternoon against the Chicago White Sox. As outfielder Jordan Danks backed up towards the fence, Jared Burton wound up and, from this angle, straight punched Brian Duensing in the Twins bullpen.

If this was supposed to serve as a distraction to Danks, they didn’t even need to do it; the ball wound up going over the fence anyways. If they were just doing it for fun, well, that’s pretty awesome.

Then again, perhaps this is just what happens when two last-place teams take each other on during a random summer Friday.
