The Los Angeles Angels have had enough of Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney.
After each save, Rodney celebrates by shooting an imaginary bow and arrow toward the sky. Against the Angels on Sunday, Rodney celebrated a little early, doing his normal antics after recording the final out of the eighth inning. In ninth inning, however, the Angels got their revenge.
Albert Pujols lined a base hit into the right field corner, which allowed Mike Trout to score all the way from first base to tie the score up. Pujols and Trout gave Rodney a taste of his own medicine when the two both pulled out the reliever’s famous bow and arrow celebration.
Things would only get worse for Rodney, as the Angels walked off with a 6-5 win a few batters later on a Grant Green single. Maybe next time Rodney won’t celebrate prematurely.
