Days after nearly getting murdered on a baseball diamond by Mike Trout, Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura successfully started a fight after taunting Adam Eaton following the White Sox outfielder’s come-backer. Some haymakers were thrown—a rarity in a baseball brawl—but few landed.Eaton hit a ground ball back to Ventura with the score tied 2-2 in the seventh inning. Ventura picked up the baseball, yelled something at Eaton and tossed to first base for the out.
That’s when things spiraled out of control, as Eaton, clearly not a fan of Ventura’s comment, started walking toward the mound. Both benches soon emptied, and a brawl broke out in the infield.A lot of wild punches were thrown, but few actually connected. When the smoke cleared, the Royals saw Yordano Ventura, Edinson Volquez and Lorenzo Cain ejected, while the White Sox saw Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija ousted.
