The Texas Rangers' J.P Arencibia gave Houston Astros' mascot Orbit a couple pokes to the belly on Saturday to get him step off the batters circle, so Orbit came back strong the following game with some signs in the "Hunter Pence insult" vein, with classics like "J.P. Arencibia lost Nemo" and "J.P. Arencibia has a teacup pig named 'Elvis.'"

The Rangers' catcher acted like he was not bothered, although it may be affecting his game a little, as he went hitless over the course of the two-game feud.
