On Thursday, Los Angeles Angels infielders Johnny Giavotella and Taylor Featherston both hit home runs in the Halos’ win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

For Featherston, it was his first major-league home run, while Giavotella’s was his seventh. 

After their respective blasts, their Angel teammates treated both scrappy infielders to some dramatic ‘silent treatment’ in the dugout before showering them with attention, and it made for a pretty amusing highlight
