All season long whenever Boston Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre hits a home run, catcher Victor Martinez tries to rub Beltre’s head. Of course Beltre’s not a fan of this and always reacts by throwing punches back at VMart.

Well after Beltre hit a grand slam in tonight’s 6-2 win over the Cleveland Indians, Marco Scutaro and VMart combined to get Beltre before he even got to the dugout.

As Beltre got to home plate, he did the usual high-five’s, arm bashing, etc, etc until Scutaro stole his helmet and VMart got a few rubs in before hightailing it into the Red Sox dugout to avoid Beltre’s wrath.

Here’s the video of the moment for you to enjoy:

One of these days Beltre is going to get one of them and probably hurt them really badly. But still a funny moment in what’s been a crazy 2010 season for the Boston Red Sox.
