Mayhem Mayhem: Big Brawl, 8 evictions, Angels top Mariners 2-1

ANAHEIM, Calif. ( Associated Press) — A lengthy bench-clearing dispute resulted in six players and both managers being ejected in the second inning of the Los Angeles Angels’ 2-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

Three of the first four hitters in the Mariners’ lineup were kicked out, while three Angels pitchers were thrown out after two days of tension on pitches boiled with punches thrown by men from both teams. The scuffle began when Seattle’s Jesse Winker charged at the Angels’ empty dugout after Winker was hit off the first pitch of Angels opener Andrew Wontz’s innings.

After the field was cleared, Angels closer Raicel Iglesias returned moments later and shouted at the umpires, throwing a large container of sunflower seeds and gum onto the infield.

The melee game was delayed by about 18 minutes.

Luis Rengifo homeridden and David McKinnon scored a tiebreaking run with a single in seventh for the Angels, who avoided a series sweep with just their fourth win in their last 18 home games.

Marco Gonzales (4-8) bowled a five-hitting ball in the seventh inning of a difficult defeat for the left-hander and the Mariners, which ended 5-1 on an impressive road trip – although the finish was witnessed by a dominant Conflict

Vontz also threw a pitch behind the head of Mariners’ No. 2 hitter Julio Rodriguez in the first innings. That pitch certainly appeared to be a reaction to Eric Swanson’s 95 mph headgear near Mike Trout’s head in the ninth inning on Saturday night, a throw that enraged the three-time AL MVP.

The umpires issued warnings to both dugouts after Wontz pitched to Rodriguez, but Winker and the Angels later set it up in an innings, leaving both the bench and bullpen empty. The brawl lasted for about four minutes, in which people from both the teams threw several punches.

Wounded Angels star Anthony Rendon threw an exposed left hand into Winker’s face during the scuffle, which is notable because his right hand is in a cast. The Halos’ $245 million third baseman is already out for the year for a second consecutive season.

When Winker finally left the field, he made obscene gestures with both hands at the taunting Angels fans behind Seattle’s dugout.

Los Angeles interim manager Phil Nevin and Seattle’s Scott Servais were ousted. The Angels lost Vontz, Iglesias and reliever Ryan Tapera, while Winker, Rodriguez and JP Crawford were tossed to the Mariners.

The rest of the day passed without incident, and Seattle scored the first run of the game in the sixth on a homer by Abraham Toro, who replaced Crawford at the top of the Mariners’ lineup. Toro’s solo drive was his first homer in 22 games since May 20.

Rengifo tied it with a solo homer from Gonzales in seventh, somehow golfing a change well below the strike zone over the fence in left center for his third homer of the season.

Monte Harrison then walked and scored a two-out single by McKinnon off Andres Muoz, who has scored a run with each of his three career hits since reaching the Majors last week. Harrison consciously made sure the run counted by diving headfirst into the home just before the Mariners took out Trout in third place.

Jose Suarez (1-2) greatly helped the Angels’ dwindling bullpen when he relieved Vontz and dismissed eight innings of six overs with a five-hitting ball.

Oliver Ortega got six outs to save his first career, which helped a lot when Max Stacy knocked out Adam Frazier in an attempt to steal second out of ninth.

Los Angeles hadn’t used an opener since May 10, 2021, but Nevin was getting creative after up-and-down rookie Reed Detters’ decadence to the minors last week, making only six starts after he hit a no. -Hitter thrown.

Suárez was demoted earlier this year after his own struggle in the Angels’ rotation to start the season, but he has been back and forth for five stints in the majors, while consistently taking effect from the pitching-poor Halos. Fights to help the mound.
