The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants met for the fifth time in 11 days with both teams clawing for postseason positioning. Tuesday’s game began with the Dodgers already having clinched a playoff spot and their magic number down to three in order to clinch the National League West division.

Justin Turner hit a leadoff home run in the first inning to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead and a shot of life in the arm. The emotion quickly boiled over as the next batter, Yasiel Puig, was hit by a Madison Bumgarner pitch on the left ankle.

Puig went down to the ground and glared at Bumgarner over his right shoulder. The Giants lefty appeared to yell towards Puig direction, who quickly rose to his feet and made his way towards the mound. Both benches and bullpens cleared as the umpires worked to break up the fracas and issued warnings.

Players were not ejected and there weren’t any further issues the rest of the way.

    Real tired of Puig. If he ever grows up, he’ll be a good ballplayer.

      You stand in there (as your job) and get hit by a 90+ mph ball and see if you don’t get pissed?! Your career could end before it’s even started. You can blame other incidents on Puig being young, but not getting thrown at….

    Bumgardner is a disgusting person and a coward. Wish Puig could have tagged him back.

    Bumgardner is such a pussy, yeah you little bitch, wait until you have many players in between you and Puig and then start your tough guy bull saying “Come on” “Come on”! Yeah, he’ll come on alright… he’ll pummel your little whinny ass like the coward you are. Hey tough guy, let’s get you and Puig in a ring in the off season and see how it goes? One rule: you don’t get to bring five friends in to protect you!
