Fists fly in benches-clearing brawl between Padres and Rockies

Nolan Arenado almost connected for a couple of huge hits. He charged the mound, triggering a basebrawl that led to five ejections and enough bad blood to inspire another Taylor Swift hit. "That's kind of why I went out there", Arenado told MLB.com's Daniel Kramer. He reached to grab Perdomo and missed.

Perdomo's retreating glove-throw represents a rare wrinkle in a baseball ballyhoo, and unlike most bench-clearing incidents, this one actually featured a couple of punches thrown - though it's not clear that any landed. In the third inning, all hell broke loose.

"We won today and that's all that mattered", Arenado said.

According to Hardball Talk, "This all stems from Tuesday night's game in which Padres outfielder Manuel Margot was hit in the ribs by a fastball".

The Rockies struck the first blow when Trevor Story blasted a two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning off Joey Lucchesi to get the game started and Colorado on the board.

Anticipating Scott's entry into the race, Democrats have spent months readying their attacks on his two terms in Tallahassee. Rick Scott for walking back on a promise not to drill for oil near the Sunshine State's coastline. "I believe in jobs".

A lesson as old as time itself: don't throw pitches near another player's head.

"I had a feeling they could do it to someone", said Arenado, who expects to be suspended. "I didn't think it would be me".

Arenado, Rockies starter German Marquez and Colorado outfielder Gerardo Parra were ejected along with Perdomo and Padres catcher A.J. Ellis. So when Padres starter Luis Perdomo unleashed a 96-mph fastball behind him and shoulder level, Arenado exploded with anger. A number of players were trying to get him to calm down.

Ellis struggled to understand the situation.

This might not be the end of this feud, either.

Adrian Gonzalez's pinch-hit, two-run single off Chris O'Grady (0-1) in a four-run eighth put the Mets ahead and helped extend the best start in team history to 10-1.

"I don't know", Gonzalez said.

Milwaukee built a 3-0 lead on home runs by Hernaz Perez in the second and Eric Thames in the third followed by Jonathan Villar's RBI groundout in the fifth.

The Padres roared back for three runs in the sixth off of right-hander Antonio Senzatela, who had replaced Marquez. Closer Wade Davis pitched a ideal ninth, with two strikeouts, to record his fifth save.
