Pittsburgh Pirates-Milwaukee Brewers Engage In Easter Brawl

The Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers gave baseball fans an extra treat on Easter Sunday with a solid brawl.

Both teams cleared the benches in the top of the third inning after a Carlos Gomez triple. Gomez jacked a ball to deep center field off of Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole. The ball hit off the wall, giving Gomez enough time to take three bases. After the play was over Cole and Gomez exchanged words, which ignited a fight between the two teams. A total of three players were ejected for the brawl: Gomez, Pirates OF Travis Snider and Brewers bench coach Jerry Narron.
