Benches Clear Between Rivals Dodgers and Giants

The Dodgers and Giants are up to their old tricks. 

The benches cleared between the longtime rivals as a melee broke out in the bottom of the seventh inning between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. 

Not surprisingly, Dodgers’ outfielder Yasiel Puig was at the center of the action, as the man known as the “Wild Horse,” has been in the middle of a few different benches clearing incidents with the Giants over recent years.

Puig was at the plate with two outs in the middle of a 1-0 Giants lead, when he fouled a pitch off to the backstop. 

Puig appeared frustrated that he missed the pitch and then San Francisco catcher Nick Hundley decided to chime in, exchanging words with Puig. 

Two two went face-to-face before they began pushing each other and both benches immediately cleared. 

Puig tried to punch Hundley at one point, as Dodgers first base coach George Lombard stood in between them, just seconds before Lombard tackled Hundley to the ground. 

Both players were ejected and the game continued.
