So on Saturday night, the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers) and the Reno Aces (Diamondbacks) got into a board-certified brawl.
As you can see via whatever media are up and running, it was not your typical baseball "fight" in which it's mostly jostling and shoving and grabbing.
How'd it start? The usual way ...
Isotopes infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena not happy about being thrown at. A few pitches later he struck out, then shoved Aces' Blake Lalli— Ben Ross (@BenjaminARoss) July 27, 2014
As a consequence, 10 players were ejected, as was Reno manager Phil Nevin. Here's hoping no one was seriously injured.
