Cubs-Reds Clear Benches, Three Ejected Reds (VIDEO)


So after David Ross got the boot after a pitch passed over Anthony Rizzo’s head and warnings were issued, Adbert Alzolay had a high pitch on Shogo Akiyama (but not high and inside), which triggered screams. To be clear, the pitch was clearly unintentional.The screams led to the clearing of shelters and paddocks, and eventually saw Joey Votto, Jesse Winker and Reds manager David Bell getting kicked out:

We’ve said it before, but in a year like this you definitely can’t have guys that are overly aggressive in these situations. Votto and Winker shouldn’t have thrown themselves onto the pitch, which is why they were thrown out.
