Royals-White Sox Brawl, Five Ejected (Video)
Coming off a heated weekend series against the Oakland Athletics, you’d think the Kansas City Royals would be looking to lay off the fighting for a week or two, but Yordano Ventura has other ideas.
After snagging a comebacker off the bat of Adam Eaton in the seventh inning, the Royals starting pitcher had some words for the White Sox outfielder. We’re not sure why Eaton hitting a hard ground ball back to the mound would anger Ventura, but it did. And the fact that it did angered Eaton. Then everyone else got angry, the dugouts cleared, and this happened:
When it was all said and done, the Royals-White Sox brawl resulted in five ejections: outfielder Lorenzo Cain, pitcher Edinson Volquez and Ventura for Kansas City, and pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Chris Sale for Chicago.
With this being just the first game of a four-game series between these two teams, this could end up being another interesting weekend for the Royals.
