New York Yankees fans continued to suffer losses after Wednesday’s game ended.
The Seattle Mariners left the field with a 7-3 win in New York, but the beatings later continued online.
Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker tweeted “Happy Flight” with an emoji wearing glasses after walking back and forth with Yankees fans in the crowd on Wednesday.
The social media post stemmed from a banter between Winker and the New York crowd during tonight’s game that sealed a series win for Seattle.
Winker approached the Yankees fans in the outfield and pointed to the fan, who said something to him. After Winker walked away, he cupped his hands over his eyes to make a “four-eyes” joke because the fan wore glasses.
New York Yankees fans angry at Winker
The outfielder created a new Twitter account to post the tweet, further infuriating Yankee fans.
The intention of the tweet worked. Winker was quickly notified by several New York fans that they would win the next meeting.
Winker won the battle with Bronx supporters on and off the field Wednesday. He hit a home run in the 7-1 win in Seattle during the win and rubbed salt into the fresh wound.
While the Yankees fans weren’t happy with the result, the Mariners fans were happy for the series win in Luis Castillo’s first start.
With a home run and a viral tweet, Winker and the Mariners drove home happy while New York Yankees fans were furious.
