Things got a little testy in the bottom of the fifth between Kyle Seager and Angels pitcher Jered Weaver.

Seager went into his normal pre-pitch routine which includes holding his left hand up to the umpire to ask for extra time to get set in the batter’s box. Weaver took exception to it and gestured to Seager with a few choice words about hurrying up.

Seager returned with some words of his own, including a few unable to be used in print.

An irritated Weaver then promptly tossed an 83 mph fastball that hit Seager in the upper back/shoulder area. Home plate umpire Brian O’Nora immediately ejected Weaver. A few players spilled on to the field in preparation for an altercation and manager Mike Scioscia came out of the dugout to protest the ejection, but no real confrontation occurred between the two teams.

Weaver was ejected directly following the sequence of events.

After the game, manager Lloyd McClendon described the altercation as “just boys being boys.”
