Brawl erupts in Padres-Rockies game after Nolan Arenado charges mound

By

Wednesday’s game between two division rivals featured plenty of fireworks in the third inning, and a benches-clearing brawl broke out as a result.

It happened after Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo threw behind Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado, which didn’t go over well. Arenado then charged the mound, which prompted Perdomo to throw his glove at the Rockies star. That accomplished nothing, as Arenado then threw multiple punches at Perdomo, who was backpedaling at the time.

A brawl erupted on the field after that, with players from both teams getting into it.

ESPN’s Buster Olney offered a reason as to why Perdomo may have thrown behind Arenado, which sparked the brawl.

Multiple players were ejected as a result of the fight.

Arenado usually keeps his cool on the field for the most part, so him charging the mound and throwing punches was quite unexpected.
