In the latter innings of the Red Sox’s 14-1 trouncing of the Mariners yesterday, an interesting scene played out between noted adversaries Jose Guillen and Brendan Donnelly.

The two were at the center of the infamous pine tar incident in Anaheim two years ago, with Guillen tipping off Frank Robinson about Donnelly’s penchant for using the foreign substance. When Donnelly (now with Boston) struck out Guillen (now with Seattle) on three pitches yesterday, plenty of Nationals players took notice. Few were surprised when Guillen then starting jawing at Donnelly and made a move toward the mound before getting corralled by the plate umpire (who then ejected the excitable outfielder).

“Never saw that coming,” one Nationals player joked about his ex-teammate.
