Brian Downing hit a three-run homer and Fred Lynn drove in three runs with a homer and two singles in host California's win over Seattle. Two players were ejected from each team in the game.
Lynn hit his 20th homer of the year, with two out and Bobby Grich aboard, in the first inning and the Angels were never headed. Lynn's homer came just after two bench-clearing brawls that delayed the game 15 minutes.
Angel leadoff hitter Rod Carew took exception to a high and inside pitch from starter Brian Clark and started toward the mound, only to be headed off by home plate umpire Ken Kaiser. While Kaiser was separating Carew and Seattle catcher Rick Sweet, Rick Burleson led a charge off the California bench and went after on Clark.
After order was restored, Carew grounded out and detoured behind the mound on his way back to the dugout, yelling at Clark. By the time Kaiser intervened, Clark and Carew were trading punches. Meanwhile, Burleson again came onto the field and was pushed down from behind by an unidentified player as both dugouts and benches emptied onto the field.
Burleson left holding his right shoulder, but there was no word if he reinjured the rotator cuff that kept him out for a year and half. Clark, Carew, Burleson and Seattle's Al Cowens were ejected.
