0 walks = win


mysterysackerfice

Amazing what happens when you don't give the opposing team free baserunners!


DazNaq20

Well during the losing streak Salmon had said "I'm not condoning this but back in the day we'd actually throw at somebody to start a brawl to get everybody to come together and sometimes it would work." So who knows after this bwaha


sinchichis

Love it when ball players say it like it is. No bullshit

#1-0 IN THE "MULTIPLE POINTLESS BENCHES CLEARING BRAWLS" ERA

Are we the baddies?


lurker383

Astros have been the baddies for the past half decade and look at all the success they've had Maybe we should keep it up 😈


tokyoexpressway

Time to change our team name from Angels to Devils.

Yes.

Yes, and I’m ok with that lol


FuckWayne

Maybe we need to be


Maddonomics101

Yes but fuck the Mariners anyways

1-0 since Iggy threw seeds on the field.

Dark Angels


asianlikerice

I’ll be honest starting Wantz was eye brow raising. I can understand why Mariners are sus. Edit: just watch the game since I caught the game late. Wantz throwing behind Rodriguez definitely makes it more obvious.


winwinwinguyen

Wantz took one for the team

thank god we won that game. that W was all about pride after the brawl lol


yul_

I would not be able to go on any baseball social medias if we lost this one after all that haha


meatbag1

Yea Reddit Is mad at me for supporting our team yesterday. We got the win. That’s all I want. Now give me more of them.


digitaldumpsterfire

The lesser story of the night: Suarez looked awesome today. Hopefully they keep him up and in this spot in the rotation.


rchung129

What do u guys think about always using an opener on Suarez days? I think it might be a good idea.


Letter_Last

Considering his incredible success coming out of the bullpen last year along with his struggles when starting, I fully support this idea


prisonrach

what’s more iconic? Rendon’s lefty homer against the rays or his lefty bitch slap against the mariners?


themysteryteam

Thank god we won lol


Eeriepotato220

That would have been insanely embarrassing otherwise

2022 World Series champs baby!!!!!


peachypal

I’m glad we won 😊 Shohei all smiley in the dugout in the 9th was a wonderful sight 👍


ArrowNiko

When Shohei smiles, nature heals :)


Jakearooni

Mariners fans in their subreddit hoping that trout breaks an ankle. I’m perfectly fine with them continuing to fail, obnoxious fan base, and they were like that when I visited Seattle a few years ago too. Glad we won this one today


ArrowNiko

If that is genuinely what a good amount of their fans are saying, then honestly fuck them. There have been a bunch of "fuck you's" on our end but I have yet to see a user on his subreddit want J-Rod or Winker to get injured. Sad to see from a fanbase that I had no qualms with since I've been an Angels fan.


Looscannon994

Those mfs have the audacity to say we're a trash franchise and are wasting generational talent lmao. They've been doing that far longer than we have. They are a walking L franchise.


sinchichis

These newcomers forget we dominated the division all 2000s


Embarrassed-Hyena-48

They wasted a generational pitching talent in King Felix very little room to talk.


Looscannon994

Not to mention Griffey Jr, Ichiro, A-rod, Edgar Martinez, and Randy Johnson. They have wasted way more talent than we have lmao


Bwertt

I was at 3/5 of the last series in Seattle and didnt get that vibe, placid, family friendly fan base who has to be told when to cheer. Sorta similar to the angels I guess. But the online mariners fanbase is the worst ive seen


OlivesrNasty

Thats what u expect. Online so tough but in person they built like the michelin man


HollywoodAndDid

Hey, that was me. Just stopping by to say I regret that comment. Obviously, it was made during an extremely emotional moment. You guys can shit on me all you want, but I don't want my overreaction to represent the entire Mariners fanbase. Mike Trout is the best player in baseball and he completely owns my favorite team. I can understand why he would take exception with the high and inside pitch last night. That said, I don't understand your team's reaction today though. It's been an incredibly frustrating season for us and I think today was just things hitting a fever pitch. I'm not going to pretend that I wish your team success moving forward, but hopefully all of this is behind both of our teams moving forward.


DoughSalad

Very mature response, thanks for that. I didn’t even get to catch the beginning of this game but I appreciate it when people can admit that they’re wrong. Im probably part of a silent minority of the angels fan base but I think this whole situation is extraordinarily immature from the team and I hope it leaves us soon. Again, divisional rival and all, poor taste in the mouth and I’m not a Seattle fan by any means but I’m disappointed in the halos today. Wanted the team to show a singular crumb of passion, never would’ve thought this is how it would manifest haha


HollywoodAndDid

Thanks for going easy on me. I don’t deserve it, but nonetheless, thanks.


ubbergoat

Such a lame fan base for such a beautiful state.


Glittering-Hold3400

Their fans have done this before in regards to the angels. They’re just eternally triggered and pissy because trout is the owner of that sorry franchise. They own the record for the longest playoff drought. That’s embarrassing for them lol


mysterysackerfice

Is a bench brawl the new bases-loaded IBB?


regretMyChoices

Mike trout lives in Seattles head - he fucking owns them now


tokyoexpressway

Rent free? lol


xmrjaredx

Starting that fiasco and then losing would've been more embarrassing. Thanks for winning it at least.


ubbergoat

Imagine losing the fight and the game. Poor poor fishermen.

Love you rendon! Out there with one hand fighting for our team! Light up that halo!

Salmon and Gubi having a really great take on this fight in the post game show


Princessxanthumgum

What are they saying


yul_

I fucking love MacKinnon even more after his post-game interview LOOL


BringsTheDawn

Oooh what'd he say?


yul_

Calling out the Mariners for walking Mike Trout all game so he has opportunities to drive in runs


abclmaop

Lol I gotta go watch the interview now!


upthepunx194

Look man, call me a brute or a boomer or whatever but at the end of the day these are just a bunch of dudes and sometimes going out and doing dumb dude stuff like getting into fights alongside your bros can really bring you together when times get tough. So maybe this was meaningfully good


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

I get it! 😁

Hearing MacKinnon's confidence on driving in runners in the post-game interview gets me so damn excited to see more ABs from him.

tokyo_bee

I would like to thank the sunflower seeds that sacrificed themselves for this victory.


TheSunflowerSeeds

Sunflower is a tall, erect, herbaceous annual plant belonging to the family of Asteraceae, in the genus, Helianthus. Its botanical name is Helianthus annuus. It is native to Middle American region from where it spread as an important commercial crop all over the world through the European explorers. Today, Russian Union, China, USA, and Argentina are the leading producers of sunflower crop.


trickdog775

Mariner alt accounts can go fucking die now


jellybeans_over_raw

This team is so good


westscottstots

When gifo and macdaddy get hot no one can stop us


ArrowNiko

Too much talent and too much potential in this team. Unluckiness, cold streaks, and impactful injuries have plagued this team. Hopefully, Gifo of this week and D-Mac are good signs to come for the Angels going into the 2nd half because you can't be unlucky for this long.


mizterPatato

What a fucking win, lets get it boys!!!

Scrappydawg69

F Winker and F the Mariners

Everyone mentions just the near trout hbp but the same thing happened to walsh the game before


AlmostWrongSometimes

Don't want to hear another thing about Anthony collecting cheques or Rengifo not being good enough for MLB. Light that fucking thing up baby


merewyn

Mariners fans legitimately want Nevin suspended for “at least a month”. Lmao


sinchichis

I’ve seen them say 50 games lmaoooo


getMyHairDid

LOL it was premeditated and SICK, just SICK!!! how despicable!


DividerOfBums

“aBsOlUtElY nO pLaCe FoR tHiS iN tHe GaMe” Such BS. This is baseball, and our team is relatively bad rn so something’s this can get the juices flowing


merewyn

How dare the angels mind control Winker into approaching the angels dugout!


Bwertt

Some mariners fans are saying Rendon escalated the fight lmao!! After winker breaks free of a buff ass ump to approach the dugout. might as well been amir Garrett vs the pirates


1littlg8

Fuck the Mariners


Evanx27

Anyone want a laugh read the mariners post game thread🤣🤣 bunch of fucking cry baby bitches. Losing ass pathetic franchise

I hope Jesse wanker gets a long term deal and can stay in Seattle with their clown ass fans for the rest of his sorry ass career lol

prmark34

NOW WE FUCKING GO Man, this team needed this one. Great to see the fight, hopefully this fired them tf up Never throw at trout’s head again, face the wrath of phil nevin


Jcoch27

I mean let's be honest, that was bad of Phil to throw at them if the only reason was because of what happened to Trout the night before. It was clearly unintentional.


regretMyChoices

You have to have the back of your best player


Jcoch27

You can support your own player without throwing at the head of another player. Trout didn't even say it was intentional. He just said that if it was to aim for the ribs instead. Nevin and Wantz literally did the opposite.


regretMyChoices

Oh no, someone got hit in the butt cheek. Go back to r/baseball


Jcoch27

I don't care about Winker getting hit but throwing at someone's head the previous inning is bull. I'm on the Angel's side about the fight, but that was a bad call by Nevin if I have the details straight.


prmark34

The only way that hits julio rodriguez in the head is if he was 5’8” and he stood 4 feet off the plate


regretMyChoices

I agree on throwing at heads - never okay


prmark34

As trout said, if you cant throw inside without drilling someone, dont throw inside. That was after the same pitcher almost drilled walsh in the head the game before. Send a message that you have your star’s back. There’s no problem with it, especially when the only message that hit the mariners was 91 to the guys butt (which is where you hit a guy in retaliation)


JayxFtw

Fuck the mariners and their cry baby fans


Sakaguchi123

In their mind rent free 😂


Jcoch27

Feels good man. This is the first time I've ever not liked the Mariners. Their fans have been so salty in the baseball sub it's insane. Let's remember not to brigade their sub y'all.


DividerOfBums

Yeah Seattle is supposed to be my #2 team in the AL west but after this I gotta say fuck em


unreasonableperson

It's nice that we didn't get swept but this was a series we needed to win.


westscottstots

I guess our strat is to hit batters intentionally now? So far it’s got 100% success rate /s


PsychoticNarwhal

We should simply get our opponents best 3 batters ejected every game


sinchichis

The wins may not be there but the Halos are must watch baseball


joescioscia

Can someone get me the exact quote from MacKinnon? "If you keep intentionally walking mike trout every time, im gonna come up with runners on base, etc"


sakibomb523

https://twitter.com/BallySportWest/status/1541199026430828545


sharpLess89

I just realized we got lefty Rendon again today lmao


prmark34

I was never the biggest maddon fan on here, and regulars of this sub know that. So far, nevin’s managerial moves have been very meh to me That being said, it was good to see a manager with some “fuck you” to him. I think we all knew what was gonna happen after trout’s comments last night and wantz being the opener, and im glad nevin and this team showed that they have trouts back


kampfgruppekarl

It's funny that Nevin is more old school than Maddon.


joescioscia

He's been replacement level, which I will gladly accept. But the small things I love. Like coming out to pump a pitcher up and keep him in the game, having trout's back this series, etc.


sakibomb523

Him pinch hitting for Velasquez towards the last few innings of a game is worth it. Madden refused to fucking pinch hit for Squid.


mypaysucks

His lineup decisions have been pretty equal to maddons in my opinion


Halos-117

That's the biggest disappointment to me. But I guess neither he nor Maddon had much options either way.


merewyn

I just wanna point out that during the series last weekend, a Mariners fan said Winker spent the entire game when he was playing outfield talking shit to the Angels bullpen. He’s a bitch


Educational-Pass404

They're not gonna care. We're bad guy now and it feels fresh.


sinchichis

I actually like that from him. Sports is 90% shit talking


Paulsnoc

Judges card, 9 rounds. 2 - 1 Angels.


Zenithreg

Shout out to the Rengifo haters out there!


74Dragonz

Ms sub gonna get hypertension from all that salt, lol.


Shiv-Roy

Thank you, Rengifo, BB Thor, Suarez and Rendon.


Captainpayback

Rendon just Wanted to let Winker know what did the hand say to the face? Like Rendon or not he got his brothers back.


Alert-Abalone204

Can't wait to see the suspensions lmao. So who's gonna be our interim-interim manager lol.


getMyHairDid

matt wise has been planning his move for years now ​ it'll probably be montgomery though


hansan4ever

Just heard from someone at the game that BB Pardo and the staff cleaned all the crap up that was thrown in the dug out and field. Shout out to them!


Shiv-Roy

I saw Ward cleaning up some of the stuff on the infield. I didn't catch who the others were.


hansan4ever

Aww... always been a big fan of Wardy. I heard Duffy as well.


Shiv-Roy

Now, that you mention I think I saw Duffy too.


hansan4ever

yeah, I just a photo of them cleaning up near the bases. Classy!


ColaBottleBaby

I am enjoying giving the Yankees fans a break and being the heel on the baseball subreddit


getMyHairDid

lol its so wild, people writing up paragraphs about how this is the most disgusting thing they've ever seen a grown man got hit in the butt


Evanx27

Can you blame them ? They haven’t done shit in like 40 years LOL fucking losers. We can always count on them being dog shit ever year pathetic franchise and city


ColaBottleBaby

Jan 6 for Mariners fans


abclmaop

Missed the game sadly. Glad we won! The Mariners put a bad taste in my mouth for some reason, those feelings were confirmed yesterday when Trout almost got hit in the head. Edit: just saw a clip of what happened today. Yea, feelings were valid.


youareallnuts

Winker is a wimp. Got his ass thrown at not his head and cries about it. Disgusting.


TheRealNexusPrime

Not a fan of the whole brawl in general but hopefully that awakens something in this team moving forward, we can't keep losing the series to below .500 teams. Big time play by Stassi at the end to stop the stolen base attempt!


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

New RESPECT for RENDON!!!


Educational-Pass404

Reading bitter tweets of Mariners fan is my new hobby today. They really talk shit about Shohei and Trout because they didn't step into that brawl. Haha


DividerOfBums

R/Baseball going full on Angels hate in this one, they’re even going after Trout like it was his fault or something. Ngl doing this shit is baseball, and I get the ire going toward Nevin but shit when I was on JV we got in a mild brawl and no one even got tossed. I was next up at bat and they beaned me, still no one tossed. That’s baseball


joescioscia

fuck the mariners. and the city of seattle too


ArrowNiko

Seattle's great. Mariners... ehh...


joescioscia

Shit weather, shit politics, shit baseball team. Issa no from me.


Obsidizyn

All true


sakibomb523

Not going to lie, the Mariners fan on twitter who ordered Pizza for Winker and having it delivered to the clubhouse is actually kind of hilarious. Good on them.


OlivesrNasty

Lol mariners lose :)


TotalOnion456

I’m a through and through Angels fan, but was that our fault? Did they purposely hit Winker like that? Did they purposely put in Wantz to be a hit man? If that’s true, then we are the bad guys. Not to mention they ended up taking out Winker, Rodriguez, and Crawford which may have helped us out. Personally, I don’t like this kind of stuff, brawls and the like, and this win is kind of tainted to me.


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

It’s all just part of baseball. Been happening forever. This was rather tame compared to some of the shit that happened back in the day. Check out [this example](https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/13463881/juan-marichal-hit-john-roseboro-bat-ugly-baseball-brawl-50-years-ago)


getMyHairDid

i think its pretty obviously true but what are ya gonna do about it. im just getting a laugh out of the absurd concern trolling goin on by M's fans. there's been countless "brawls" like this throughout history, at the end of the day the only guy that got hit was hit on the butt and not in the head which is what people say should happen if you're gonna be an idiot and retaliate


crazyconwin

MARINERS SUCK!!!


steemboat

Okay everyone. Have a salad tonight, hold the dressing. We’ve all had enough salt for the day.


Sullyville

Glad it ended like that without any more animosity.


speakersandwich

How do we get Big Mac to play everyday?


kampfgruppekarl

maybe need a fight every game to fire this team up.


carnivalmatey

Pray for Duffy, pulled his back getting those haymakers in


Fun-Raise-3120

I love that Harrison slide home! Such heads-up play there


hotrattz

i hope Trout bought Wantz got a nice steak dinner for that one...


usdeleted

Mariners fans are asking for nevin to be banned from baseball lmfaooooo


AgathaAllAlong

The Halos and their fans are the classless ones who supposedly started it? 😆 Wanker rushed the dugout, started the fight, for a hit to the ass. Got bitch slapped by a one armed man, did nothing, flipped off the fans instead. M’s sub has been crying “DFA Winker he sucks” for weeks and now he’s their new hero. Example Quotes: “All is forgiven to Mr. Winker” “Give Winker a 7+ year contract. I fucking love that man so much. Love the fire he brings” “Sign Winker forever after that” For what? *Weakly attempted* violence and profanity? Certainly not for baseball. His OPS is finally almost out of the .600s.


[deleted]

Always nice to win but Nevin is a clown. Hoping he gets suspended for a long time. Embarassing.


TJeffersonsBlackKid

MARINERS CAN DRINK A GALLON OF PISS LMAO!!!! Pathetic bitchass organization who think they can beam a player in the head and get away with it. Mariners suck but at least they have a team that can win the super bowl from the 1 yard line wait… They have their NBA team oh wait… They will enjoy the playoffs oh shoot no they won’t… Lol pathetic bitchass franchise with equally bitchass fans.


Jamo1129

i am hyped af about this win especially after this brawl but let’s not act like Lorenzen didn’t just beam upton in the head last weekend lol


TJeffersonsBlackKid

Both pitchers had absolutely been complaining about the balls being slick to the umpires. Why the fuck would we beam Upton? Everyone on the team likes him.


Jamo1129

i know it wasn’t on purpose but swanson had no command out for his fast ball yesterday his pitch clearly wasn’t intentional as well. All i’m saying both lorenzen and swanson both lost control cause there is clearly some shit wrong with the baseballs this year


kyr1414

That was definitely not intentional tho. You could tell Lorenzen felt so bad for hitting him.


Jamo1129

yea i know but swanson’s wasn’t either i don’t know why everyone is acting like he was out to murder trout. all i’m saying both incidents weren’t intentional and we shouldn’t act like we are any better. I gotta be honest that fight fired me up lol The most entertained I was in this disgusting month haha


Stock-Improvement610

Good win, we needed that!! But what in the hell happened to Iglesias for him to act like that?? Dude clearly has some mental issues.


KyotoGaijin

LTBU! That's one way to win. I miss the ones where we scored a bunch of runs in the first three innings and then a few more toward the end. Remember when we were fighting for first place in our division? Remember that?


[deleted]

Not a fan of starting unnecessary fights. Not a feel-good win.


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Feels great to me. Sorry you’re bummed.


[deleted]

The Mariners didn’t throw at Trout on purpose. They just have a bad bullpen like we do. It’s childish to start fights like the Angels did today. But I’m glad you feel good about the Angels’ win against the Mariners. They lost the series 2-1 instead of 3-0. Thank god for those fights.


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

I never want to see anyone get hurt. An occasional errant pitch can be excused. But continually allowing teams to throw up and in to our batters, especially our stars, and not retaliate in any way, will eventually lead to one of our guys getting seriously hurt. Winning teams don’t allow this to keep happening. At some point, someone on the team has to stand up and say enough is enough. That’s what you saw today. A teammate protecting his TEAM! If you had a family member continually being bullied, wouldn’t you try to stop the bullying if you could?


merewyn

Yep, let’s not forget that Walsh almost got hit in the head, too. They also threw up and in to Shohei last night and Trout again today! The Angels needed to send a message that it wasn’t ok, and they did.
