Punches thrown during Rockies-Padres bench-clearing brouhaha

Adjust Comment Print

Things got very heated during today's Padres vs. Rockies game.

Arenado and Perdomo were ejected along with the Rockies' Gerardo Parra and German Marquez, who was the starting pitcher for Colorado, and the Padres' A.J. Ellis. In the bottom of the first inning of Wednesday's game, Perdomo hit Trevor Story with a 1-1 fastball. In the second inning, Colorado's starting pitcher German Marquez retaliated by beaning San Diego's right fielder Hunter Renfroe. The third baseman wasted no time in sprinting right for Perdomo. And, as usual, it didn't take long to go viral. Perdomo and catcher A.J. Ellis were tossed on San Diego's side.
