Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney is known for his "bow and arrow, point to the sky" celebration after completing a save. 

Division rivals Mike Trout and Albert Pujols of the Los Angeles Angels might have gotten a little tired of seeing Rodney taunt Angels fans after escaping in the eighth inning. 

So when the Angels rallied to beat the Mariners 6-5 on Sunday afternoon, the power-hitting duo decided to give Rodney a taste of his own medicine. 

The rally began when Trout drew a leadoff walk in the bottom of the ninth, and Pujols doubled him home to tie the game at five. Grant Green then sent the winning run across the plate with a bases-loaded, walk-off single, denying Rodney what would have been his 200th career save. 

Tyler Skaggs of the Angels chimed in after the game:

You can bet Rodney will celebrate a little extra the next time he saves a game against the Angels.
