Red Sox bench Pablo Sandoval for mid-game Instagram like

Pablo Sandoval found himself sort of unfriended — make that benched — by the Boston Red Sox after the All-Star third baseman was caught liking some Instagram photos in the locker room bathroom — during a game.

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.

The social media activity during the game was first noticed by Barstool Sports. Sandoval admitted it was him liking the photos of the woman during the game, according to ESPN, adding that he was in the bathroom at the time.

Maybe he was liking the photo a little too much.
