Reno Aces and Albuquerque Isotopes Had a Huge Bench Clearing Brawl, 10 Players Ejected [Video]

The Reno Aces and Albuquerque Isotopes, AAA affiliates for the Diamondbacks and Dodgers, had one of the biggest baseball brawls of the season.

Isotopes infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena was upset after he felt he was thrown at in the top of the second inning by pitcher Mike Bolsinger. He then shoved Aces catcher Blake Lalli after striking out and threw his helmet at another Reno player. Things escalated from there, as the two teams rushed the backstop.

This was not your typical MLB crowd convergence. Takedowns. Punches thrown. A melee at the backstop. This was a full-on backyard rumble. Ten players were ejected.

Richard Sherman Involved in Fight During Seahawks Minicamp, Jersey Torn & Punches Thrown [Video]

There aren’t many players in the NFL that like  Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman, and now it seems that feeling is  spreading to his own teammates.

During just the second day of the Seahawks’ minicamp on Wednesday, the outspoken cornerback got into it with wide receiver Phil Bates, and the altercation ended with Bates’ jersey being torn off and punches being thrown.

Teammates intervened, and Sherman, Earl Thomas, Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin all got involved in the offense vs. defense civil war.

In traditional Pete Carroll fashion, the Seattle coach played off the skirmish, and joked about the situation.

Sherman, who has established himself as one of the most talented yet talkative players in the league during his time with Seattle, just can’t seem to stay out of the news this offseason.

Benches Clear During Red Sox-Rays Game, 4 Boston Members Ejected [Video]

After the two teams got in a scuffle last week, the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays cleared the benches once again on Friday.

Rays pitcher David Price hit Mike Carp with a pitch in the fourth inning, bringing both teams out of their respective dugouts. David Ortiz, who was also hit by a pitch in the first inning of the game, was especially upset and started shouting loudly at Price and in the direction of James Loney.

According to Gordon Edes from ESPNBoston.com, four members of the Red Sox were ejected during the game. Starting pitcher Brandon Workman, third base coach Brian Butterfield, manager John Farrell and bench coach Torey Lovullo were all sent to the showers early.

Despite all of the ejections, Boston still won, 3-2, in 10 innings.

Joshua Taylor, 22, of 121 Walnut St., will be charged with affray, two counts of felony malicious damage and intimidation
of a witness.


Police say Taylor threatened to kill a witness who pointed him out to police, and later kicked in the door panel on the cruiser and bent one of the bars on the cruiser window.


Taylor was too “out-of-control” to be booked immediately Tuesday night, police said.
