Rockies' Arenado: 'I had to do something' after being thrown at

Share

Tensions between the teams hit boiling point after the Padres' Manuel Margot was hit by a pitch on Tuesday and placed on the disabled list with bruised ribs.

Nolan Arenado didn't hesitate for a second after Luis Perdomo threw behind him in the third inning Wednesday. Arenado, Rockies left fielder Gerardo Parra and starting pitcher German Marquez were all tossed, in addition to Perdomo and Padres catcher A.J. Ellis.

"I had a feeling they could do it to someone", Arenado said. Arenado kept trying to punch the pitcher as the benches cleared and the relievers sprinted in from the bullpen.

Then with the Yankees leading 10-6 in the seventh, Kelly almost hit Austin and then caught him on the side with a 2-1 pitch clocked at 98 miles per hour. Six players have been hit in the seven games between the two clubs already this year.

The Padres explained that several of their players were hit, and that Perdomo has the right to pitch inside.

That pitch appeared to be in retaliation for Austin's hard slide in the third inning when his lead foot clipped the foot of Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt during a force out.

Five players were ejected for taking part in the melee. Colorado scored five times in that inning and didn't look back in the win. In the top of the second, Marquez hit Hunter Renfroe with a 0-1 fastball.
