When Texas Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin robbed former teammate Nelson Cruz of a home run during Wednesday's game in Baltimore, everyone involved reacted in hilarious fashion.

Martin and Cruz were teammates in Texas from 2011 to 2013, but this past offseason, Cruz signed with the Baltimore Orioles.

You can bet that Cruz wanted to make the Rangers pay when he played against them this season.

Unfortunately for him, Martin patrols center field for Texas.

Check out the play, which is made even better by all of the hilarious reactions:

Martin was pretty pleased with himself, and Cruz could do nothing but give his former teammate some props.

Don't forget about the pitcher, Miles Mikolas, either.

When Martin came down with the ball, nobody in the stadium was more relieved than the right-hander.
