Jesse Winker made headlines Sunday afternoon in the Mariners’ matchup against the Angels. After being plunked by a pitch in the second inning of action, Winker started a benches-clearing brawl.

After the game, one Mariners fan rewarded the outfielder for his early exit by ordering him a pizza. The fan is now going viral on social media. You can check out the whole thread here.

Sofie, a Seattle supporter, thought Winker deserved the slice after the game. She placed an order for a pepperoni pie at Mountain Mike’s pizza in Anaheim.

That pizza was then delivered to Angel Stadium. She even offered to double the delivery driver’s tip to ensure that it got to the clubhouse safely.

The story wasn’t quite through yet.

But he wasn’t the only winner on the evening.

The Mariners decided to give a bit of payback for the generous fan, gifting her with a jersey from the team store.

A crazy ending to an even crazier scene on the baseball diamond. Everyone left a winner after this wild Sunday afternoon matchup, except for the Mariners who fell 2-1.
