Video: Benches clear at Rex Sox vs. Rays game for punchless brawl

red sox rays bench clearing brawl

The benches cleared when Boston Red Sox pitcher John Lackey nailed Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Matt Joyce in the bottom of sixth inning.

There was history, of course. Earlier in the ballgame, Lackey had gotten into a shouting match with shortstop Sean Rodriguez.

No punches were thrown, but it’s pretty obvious these two teams do not like one another.
