Mariners, Angels get in major brawl after inside pitches

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels engaged in a lengthy full-team brawl in the second inning Sunday after tensions over two days of inside pitches boiled over.

Seattle’s Jesse Winker was hit by the first pitch of the second inning by Angels opener Andrew Wantz, who had also thrown a pitch behind the head of the Mariners’ No. 2 hitter, Julio Rodriguez, in the first inning.

The first pitch appeared to be a response to Erik Swanson’s 95 mph fastball near Mike Trout’s head on Saturday night, infuriating the three-time AL MVP.
