Randy Arozarena homered in the fifth inning to make it 4-0. He had some fun pumping up his teammates afterward. He pounded his chest, pointed his finger, flexed in the dugout and did some pushups.

Red Sox radio announcers Joe Castiglione and Will Flemming gave a description of Arozarena’s celebration and did not seem too thrilled.

“He didn’t move for about five seconds after hitting it,” Flemming noted.

The two did have a chuckle and admitted they support players having fun. But they did point out how far Arozarena took it.

When it comes to celebrating big hits, it could be a lot worse.
