Baseball is starting to look a lot like hockey.
On Tuesday evening, the Orioles took on the Royals, but a lot more went down than a normal 9-inning game.
Shortstop for the Orioles, Manny Machado, was up to bat when the Royals’ pitcher, Yordano Ventura, hit Machado with a wild pitch.
The 99 mph fastball hit Machado right in the back, which sparked a bench-clearing brawl.
“I don’t regret anything,” Machado said. “It’s part of the game. Reactions fly. When somebody’s throwing 99 at you, it’s going to hurt. You can ruin someone’s career. You don’t think in that situation. You just react to it.”
Regardless of who is to blame, both players were rightfully ejected from the game and the Orioles went on to beat the Royals 9-1.
