Wednesday night, while the Boston Red Sox were taking on the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field, Twitter user @Jared_Carrabis noticed something strange regarding the Instagram account of Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval—that it liked a few images belonging to Instagram user “diva_legacy” while the game was still going on:

In case you were wondering, yes, Sandoval got the start on Wednesday.  And he did play the entire game.  So was he hacked?  No, he was not.

Well then, what happened?  There must be some wild explanation to all of this, right?  Do we have another MLB hacking scandal on our hands? Not at all.

On Thursday, Pablo Sandoval confessed to Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington and manager John Farrell, telling them that he was using the app while taking a bathroom break.

Sandoval’s punishment? Thursday off.  No fine.

As for the images he liked while he was on the can, you can check them out below:
