It seems we have our first real baseball brawl of the season.


In the eighth inning between the Giants and Nationals, Giants reliever Hunter Strickland drilled Bryce Harper in the side with a 97.8 mph fastball, with Harper promptly charging the mound.

The Nats right fielder began by tossing his helmet in the direction of Strickland, with the two both throwing several punches, both connecting with the other’s face.

Both dugouts would empty, and while there were several smaller fights, both Harper and Strickland were restrained by teammates and taken to their dugouts. Naturally, both were ejected by the umpiring crew.


The batter-pitcher combination apparently has some history, with Harper clubbing a pair of long home runs off Strickland in the 2014 NLDS, admiring both shots and taking his time around the basepaths.
