Seattle Mariners left fielder Jesse Winker might have earned himself an ejection Sunday, but at least he got a pizza for his trouble.

Winker was hit by a pitch in the second inning of Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. That triggered a benches-clearing brawl that saw him and seven others sent to the showers early.

One Mariners fan figured the 2021 All-Star worked himself up an appetite and ordered a pizza to be delivered to Angel Stadium:

I have confirmed that not only did Jesse Winker get the pizza, he said it was really good. So, there you go, <a href="https://twitter.com/MountainMikes?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@MountainMikes</a> is on my list next time I'm in Anaheim. Thanks for the tip <a href="https://twitter.com/sofieballgame?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@sofieballgame</a> <a href="https://t.co/Ek7Kc820Cr">https://t.co/Ek7Kc820Cr</a>

The Mariners responded to the act of generosity by offering the fan a jersey:

Seattle Mariners @Mariners

Mariners fans are the best ๐Ÿ’™<a href="https://twitter.com/sofieballgame?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@sofieballgame</a>, we have a Jesse Winker jersey from the <a href="https://twitter.com/MarinersStore?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@MarinersStore</a> weโ€™d love to *deliver* to you. What do you say? <a href="https://t.co/w6odOwCdn9">pic.twitter.com/w6odOwCdn9</a>

Hopefully Winker has plenty of leftovers. Suspensions are inevitable given the scope of the brawl, so he might be watching some more Mariners games from the clubhouse very soon.
