Basebrawl! Harper, Strickland punch away, Nats-Giants fight

Washington Nationals Bryce Harper hits San Francisco Giants Hunter Strickland in the face after being hit with a pitch in the eighth inning of a baseball game Monday Basebrawl! Harper, Strickland punch away, Nats-Giants fight

ORIOLES 3, YANKEES 2 Dylan Bundy allowed two runs over seven innings and host Baltimore snapped a seven-game losing streak, defeating NY.

"But what's wrong with staring?"

There are "brawls" and then there are brawls. The beef between Strickland and Harper appears to date back to 2014, when the Giants and Nationals met in the playoffs. "But we're not here to take any stuff either". "I'm not sure how all that goes". The benches cleared, and it was ugly.

The two teams still have to face off in two more matches, so here's hoping we get a round three.

"That clearly wasn't going inside. I think if the Giants thought it was that egregious, Bryce would've gotten one the next season".

Harper will nearly certainly get suspended.

As an irate Bryce Harper charged toward the mound, Buster Posey just stood and watched from behind home plate.

DENVER - Sam Gaviglio pitched into the sixth inning to get his first career victory, and Seattle used six relievers to beat Colorado. Maybe the play is to charge the mound and turn and square up to the first baseman and throw the helmet at him.

"A baseball is a weapon", Harper said, adding that "sometimes you've got to go and get him".

The Nationals, by and large, did not charge in looking for a fight. The Nationals also got 2B Daniel Murphy back after he didn't make any starts in the Padres series because of an illness. "I think it hit the tip of my glove and rolled all the way down my body".

During Monday afternoons game between the Washington Nationals & San Francisco Giants, Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland drilled Nationals superstar Bryce Harper with an eighth-inning pitch that sparked a massive brawl.

The Giants were slow to react to the incident. "Those are some big guys tumbling on the ground". The slugger pointed his bat at Strickland, yelled at him and took off.

If MLB determines he was just tossing his helmet aside, he could face a similar suspension to that of Baltimore Orioles' Manny Machado who was suspended for four games past year for charging the mound and punching Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura. People mocking the mistakes of others is commonplace online, but with jokes these amusing, we can't really complain! But he did note that his early arrival probably wasn't a coincidence.

The one thing everyone basically agrees on is that pitches at the head are unacceptable in any situation. "Especially when it's somebody that's in the past", Harper said...

"You can't let a guy take a free shot at you throwing 95".

"It looks bad, it does", he said. "It's what's insane about our game when somebody takes a shot at you". His style has made him a polarizing figure in the game, with veterans more likely to take issue with it.

"If anybody gets suspended", he said, "the pitcher should get suspended". "It's part of the game, but I don't know what it is".

Baker even defended Harper's response.

For many, Memorial Day goes best with a couple of hamburgers, beers, and baseball.

And when he seemed to lose his cool during Game 2 of that year's World Series? As Harper rounded the bases, the two exchanged glances and even jawed a little at one another. He's got a World Series ring, it's on his finger, he's able to look at it every single night he wants to. "I really don't know", one Giants player told Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Discipline on deck for Harper-Strickland brawl. But any talk of respect ended there, transforming instead into talk of relevance. "Throwing at Harper for celebrating two home runs in postseason ball, that right there, that's not a good thing for the Giants, that's not a good thing for Strickland".

"It just wasn't relevant". "It was three years ago, over a thousand days".

It's kind of amusing to watch, though the consequences for Harper and Strickland, a relief pitcher, could be severe. "Well, couldn't get him out, so the only way he could do it". He said he wasn't thinking about that accident, but he was concerned about injuries.

David Price showed some great velocity in his 2017 Red Sox debut Monday afternoon, hitting 97 miles per hour - heat he didn't have past year. "That's the bottom line".
