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 best thing about arrows? They can be fired right back at your opponent. http://t.co/q1o4OIpxa7— Angels (@Angels) July 20, 2014
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:
But #Angels P Tyler Skaggs said of Rodney, "I’m glad we won, because that’s ridiculous. Just goes to show you, don’t rile up our team."— Mike DiGiovanna (@MikeDiGiovanna) July 21, 2014
You can bet Rodney will celebrate a little extra the next time he saves a game against the Angels.
