Video Shows Anthony Rendon Punching Jesse Winker During Brawl

When the Angels made a late decision Sunday to go with little-used reliever Andrew Wantz as their opener on the mound, the Mariners suspected they might be about to get payback for a fastball that got awfully close to Mike Trout's head the previous night during Angels-Mariners.

Angels said that wasn't the reason and yet Wantz threw a pitch behind Julio Rodriguez's head in the first inning and then hit Jesse Winker in the hip to start the second. A wild, angry brawl ensued, resulting in the ejections of six players and both managers. The fracas will be remembered by both teams a whole lot longer than the Angels' 2-1 victory over Seattle.

In the middle of it, Anthony Rendon who is out for the season for the Angels, threw a punch at Jesse Winker in the middle of the brawl.

Major League Baseball will likely be handing down suspension and fines throughout the week as the league reviews the video.
