On Sunday, two American League West division rivals went at it in a good old fashioned baseball brawl.
Punches were thrown, players were ejected, middle fingers were exposed to the crowd, and we even saw a bucket of sunflower seeds take flight.
On Monday, punishments were handed out to both sides, with Angels manager Phil Nevin receiving the harshest penalty, a 10-game suspension.
Winker was issued a seven-game suspension for his actions.
Bob Nightengale tweeted a list of casualties from the brawl.
The fight scorecard:
3 active players
1 injured player.
3 active players, who are everyday position players.

MLB Comes Down Hard On Halos, M’s
MLB really dropped the hammer.
Nevin and Winker obviously got the stiffest punishments, but a lot of players and coaches had some discipline levied their way.
The Angels got the majority of it, with three coaches, four players, and an interpreter receiving suspensions in addition to Nevin.
The Mariners had three active players end up suspended, with Winker and J.P. Crawford being the most notable.
This was obviously expected after such a big brawl, but Major League Baseball made sure to hand out some stiff punishments for everybody involved.
The fact that even an interpreter got suspended just shows how intense things got between the two sides.
You would never expect for an interpreter to end up suspended, but that’s the way things played out.
The Angels and Mariners are two teams who are really down on their luck at the moment, but are still neck and neck in the middle of the pack of the AL West.
