>>10 Ejected Following Minor League Brawl

(Reno, NV) -- A wild minor league brawl between Triple-A affiliates from the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday resulted in several ejections. The Reno Aces and Albuquerque Isotopes were involved in two bench-clearing incidents with the second ending with 10 ejections. Isotopes infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena took exception to being thrown at by Aces pitcher Mike Bolsinger and both benches cleared. When play resumed, Arruebarrena struck out before shoving Reno catcher Blake Lalli and throwing his helmet at a member of the Aces who charged at him. Reno ended up winning the game 7-3.
