Seattle Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh had some choice words for Toronto Blue Jays manager John Schneider following Wednesday's game.

Raleigh took exception to comments Schneider made last April when the manager said Raleigh was "not very tough to pitch to when you execute your pitches."

Raleigh burned the Blue Jays with a game-winning two-run home run in the top of the 10th inning in Seattle's 6-1 victory to avoid a three-game sweep on Wednesday.

"I know a lot of guys have beef with him in the league. So his comments aren't surprising," Raleigh said of Schneider, according to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times. "I don't have much to say. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all, if you don't want it to come back on you."

Raleigh has hit nine home runs in 15 regular-season games against the Blue Jays during his career. The 27-year-old also went deep in Seattle's two-game sweep of the Blue Jays in the 2022 wild-card series.

The Blue Jays and Mariners will meet again in July when Toronto makes its annual trip to T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
