Francisco Cervelli pretends to charge mound after HBP

Francisco Cervelli pretends to charge mound

Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli was a good sport after being hit by a pitch during Thursday's spring training game against Philadelphia.

It happened in the bottom of the fifth as Phillies pitcher Juan Nicasio caught Cervelli on the left arm with a 2-1 pitch. Cervelli knew it was an accident, and got a good laugh out of it by pretending to charge the mound.

Nicasio appreciated the humor. If this were the regular season, things might have played out differently, but it's a good thing that Cervelli and Nicasio are having a little fun out there.
