Things got very interesting today in the top of the 9th-inning during the Canada vs Mexico World Baseball Classic game. Teams cleared the benches for a big-time brawl after a Canadian batter was hit by a pitch.
Chris Robinson of Canada lead off the inning with a bunt, but the fact that his team was leading 9-3 seemed to spark the reason for the hit pitch. Rene Tosoni stepped into the box after and Mexico pitcher Arnold Leon threw the first pitch close to the batters knees. He followed that pitch with one to the back and after that, as the announcers simply put it, “it was on.”
