On Saturday night, Mariner reliever Erik Swanson hit Mike Trout with a high-and-tight pitch, sowing the seeds for the brawl. After Los Angeles’ Andrew Wantz threw at Julio Rodriguez and later hit Jesse Winker, Trout and the Angels took offense, and things became heated on Sunday.

After the heated exchanges, an all-out brawl broke out, lasting 6-7 minutes, during which people punched and shoved one another. At one point, the battle got out of hand, and MLB officials had to intervene. Several players and coaches received suspensions as a result of the conflict, although no one sustained any serious injuries.
