Venezuelan pitcher José Suárez, of the Los Angeles Angels, added this Sunday his first victory of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season.
Suarez, 24, came on to pitch in the second inning after starter Andrew Wantz was ejected for hitting Jesse winker. That situation unleashed a strong brawl that ended with eight expulsions.
In six innings of work, the native of Naguanagua, Carabobo state, allowed five hits, allowed one run and struck out eight rivals.
The sinister Venezuelan threw 87 pitches, 59 of them on strike, after facing 22 batters.
In addition to José Suárez, fellow Venezuelan Luis Rengifo contributed to the Los Angeles cause by hitting his third homer of the year.

The other race for the Los Angeles team was driven in by David MacKinnon.
With this victory, the troop now commanded by Phil Nevin won their 35th victory (35-40) of the campaign.
