Brad Peacock's parents shared a cute moment with him as he warmed up before Game 3

As Astros pitcher Brad Peacock approached the bullpen for a warmup session, he saw a couple familiar faces in the crowd: Jerry and Jacyne Peacock. His parents were looking on as he prepped for his start before the Red Sox 10-3 win over the Astros in Game 3 of the ALDS presented by Doosan.

As Peacock settled in for his warmups on Sunday, he tossed a ball to his parents with his mom grabbing it. 

"Hey, good girl," Jerry said as the couple smiled. They laugh as she mentions she "stole it."

According to MLB.com's Alyson Footer, however, this isn't the first time by far this has happened. She spoke to the couple and it turns out Jerry has "over 1,000 balls" from his son tossing them to his dad.

As his session came to an end, he tossed another ball to Jerry to add to his collection. It was a tug-at-your-heartstrings type of moment before a very important game.

Tune in to ALDS Game 4: Monday, 1 p.m. ET/noon CT on FS1.
