After Kansas City Royals infielder Omar Infante hit a two-run homer Wednesday night in Game 2 of the World Series, San Francisco Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland yelled from the mound at the first runner to cross home, catcher Salvador Perez.

Infante’s home run gave the Royals at 7-2 lead in the sixth inning. Nearly 24 hours earlier, this tweet referenced the Hunter Pence meme that has followed the Giants outfielder most of the season.

And then it happened: Others picked up on the hashtag.
