Prior to Game 3 of the ALCS, Astros third baseman Alex Bregman appeared to troll the Red Sox and starter Nathan Eovaldi when he posted a video to his Instagram of back-to-back Astros homers off Eovaldi earlier in the year.

The Red Sox said it didn't bother them at the time, but it appears it was still on their minds during the ALCS-clinching Game 5.

TBS cameras caught David Price yelling, 'Post that' to Bregman from the Red Sox dugout after he struck out in the eighth inning against Eovaldi, who was pitching as a reliever. Bregman ended the series 0 for his last 10.

Meanwhile, Price got the win going six shutout innings, while scattering three hits and striking out a playoff career-high nine batters. This was his first playoff win as a starter.

Here's video of Price chirping at Bregman.
