In the midst of Boston’s 5-2 defeat in Atlanta on Wednesday, Sandoval excused himself from the dugout and liked multiple pictures — including this one — of fellow Instagram user @diva_legacy.
The likes happened at about 9:20 p.m., according to the Instagram timeline, while Boston was batting in the seventh inning. Sandoval was the sixth batter due up in that inning of a game they would eventually lose.
It would be the Red Sox’s eighth loss in nine games.
Maybe he was liking the photo a little too much.
