Big Time Brawl Between Pirates and Reds
Things got out of hand last night at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.
In the seventh inning, Pittsburgh's Keone Kela threw up and in to Derek Dietrich, who had admired a home run back in April. That incident caused benches to clear.
The first of eight ejections happened in the eighth when Reds' manager David Bell was tossed for arguing balls and strikes. Then Reds' reliever Jared Hughes was ejected in the ninth for hitting Starling Marte with a pitch.
Amir Garrett came in and wound up charging the Pirates' dugout, throwing a couple of punches. The Reds' Yasiel Puig then reignited the melee.
Ironically, Puig, who had been obtained by the Reds in an offseason trade with the Dodgers, had been traded to the Cleveland Indians just moments before the clash.
