The benches emptied in the second inning after Jesse Winker was hit by a pitch from Mariners starting gunner Andrew Wantz. Earlier in the game, the latter had come within a hair of sending a ball behind the head of striker Julio Rodriguez.
On Saturday, during the second duel of the series between the two teams, Angels star player Mike Trout was also grazed by a throw, a fastball from Erik Swanson.
Ultimately, three Mariners players and manager Scott Servais were ejected from Sunday's game. The toll was even more severe for the Angels: four members of the team and their interim pilot, Phil Nevin, saw their game end prematurely.
Still, it was the crowd favorites who emerged victorious in this hostile duel by a score of 2 to 1, thanks to a two-run push in the seventh inning. Luis Renfigo homered and David MacKinnon singled to propel the Angels to victory.
The only point for the Mariners was the work of Quebecer Abraham Toro. He sent an offering from José Suarez into the stands, his seventh long ball of the season.
