El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Triple-A baseball fans witnessed one of the worst bench-clearing brawls in recent memory on Saturday.
In the second inning, Albuquerque Isotopes' Erisbel Arruebarrena had a couple words he wanted to share with the Reno Aces' catcher Blake Lalli. The rest is history...
Arruebarrena shoved Lalli then fired his helmet at an incoming Aces' infielder. After some pushing and shoving, things escalated near the backstop net. Punches were thrown and players were pushed into the first row of the stands.
When it was all said and done, ten players were ejected, including former Major Leaguer Phil Nevin.
The Aces are affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Isotopes are affiliated with the LA Dodgers.
The Aces ended up with a 7-3 victory over the Isotopes.
