Then, he charged the mound. Harper dropped his bat as he approached the mound and lost his grip as he tried to fling his helmet.

"After it happened I saw Harper point and the next thing you know he's going out after them", Posey said.

There is little sense in risking an injury for someone's vendetta.

Today, Strickland was able to get, what he believed was revenge, and through doing so, got both himself and Harper ejected from the contest. Mike Morse is about as big as they come and he was getting knocked around like a pinball.

In the top of the eighth inning, Strickland plunked Harper on the right hip.

Strickland said he missed his spot. "Obviously I've left the ball over the plate a couple times to him and he's taken advantage of it". "Baseball is a game where you don't forget and you can hold grudges for a long, long time and that was my take on it".

Some old-school baseball officials might argue that this should be left to the players to sort out, but that would be really stupid.

As the two players slugged it out, both benches cleared and Harper was eventually pulled away as the ugly melee continued.

"You never want to get suspended or anything like, but sometimes you just got to go and get them and can't hesitate", Harper said. It's on his finger. The Giants played without INF/OF Eduardo Nunez, who underwent tests Monday for a possible concussion sustained in a Sunday win over the Atlanta Braves. Manager Dusty Baker rejoined the team after missing the weekend to attend son Darren's high school graduation.

"What's a man supposed to do?" (Strickland) probably took exception to that, " Baker said.

USA slaps sanctions on Venezuela Supreme Court judges
Maduro's government accuses them of seeking a violent coup and says numerous protesters are no more than "terrorists". Even though they no longer sit in congress, the court said parliamentary leaders had not handled their case legally.

The San Francisco Giants were pegged by many to be the best team in the National League East but that has not been the case yet.

"Tough lineup. He gave us a chance", Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of his starter, who received zero runs of offensive support for the third time this season. "There's no question about that.He'll tell you he was trying to come in". You don't want to make a mistake there. Events you think would bury the hatchet instead only allow the bad vibes to fester.

Strickland denied any intent. The NL East leaders opened a nine-game West Coast trip with their sixth win in eight games.

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 a year ago for charging the mound and punching Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura. It was far enough inside to leave no doubt, and Giants catcher Buster Posey standing still rather than slowing Harper said everything you need to know about how the pitch was perceived by Strickland's own teammates.

"I can see how (2014) stays in people's minds", he said. One notable blow other than the main scuffle between Harper and Strickland was coincidentally between two Giants players; Michael Morse was accidentally laid out by Jeff Samardzija.

Harper was retired three times by Matt Moore.

Pence is on the disabled list, so he might be subject to disciplinary action for taking the field in a brawl - even in a peacemaker role. McCutchen sent a 1-1 pitch from Archie Bradley (1-1) over the right field wall to cap off a back-and-forth ninth.

Nationals slugger Bryce Harper and Giants reliever Hunter Strickland are certain to soon get penalized by Major League Baseball after their fight in San Francisco. Strickland had hit Harper when there were two outs and nobody on base.

Strickland also angered the Kansas City Royals for yelling at them in the World Series that October; he later apologized for losing his temper and called it a learning experience.

Have a look, it's all good.

. "But that's the past. I chose to go after him".
