Boston Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy turned in a solid performance Wednesday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but he had to share the spotlight with a certain power-hitting teammate.

Making just his second start of the spring, Peavy allowed one run (a solo homer) on four hits, striking out five and walking one in 4 2/3 innings of work. As the right-hander spoke with NESN sideline reporter Sarah Davis in the dugout after the conclusion of his outing, though, the two were interrupted by a smiling David Ortiz, who wanted to dish out some praise to his pitcher.

Check it out in the video above, with Ortiz’s cameo coming just after the 2:00 mark.
