“Base-Brawl” in Cincinnati

There’s no crying in baseball…… But!……

Punches are allowed!

The Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates continued their season-long feud Tuesday night, and did so amid unusual circumstances. How unusual? Yasiel Puig was throwing hands on behalf of his Reds teammates… minutes after reports surfaced on social media stating he had been traded to Cleveland as part of a three-team deal for Trevor Bauer.

The nonsense began with the Pirates throwing at Derek Dietrich, who pinch-hit in the seventh. You may recall the Pirates’ beef dates back to April, when Dietrich admired a home run he hit against them. That celebration led to the Pirates throwing behind Dietrich, which resulted in the benches clearing. Keone KelaAmir Garrett, and Puig were each ejected for their parts that afternoon.
