Nolan Arenado, Luis Perdomo spur wild basebrawl between Rockies and Padres

Prized Rockies prospect Ryan Mc Mahon has that left-out feeling

A bench-clearing brawl erupted during the San Diego Padres' game against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday afternoon.

A third-inning brawl resulted in the ejections of star third baseman Nolan Arenado, left fielder Gerardo Parra and starting pitcher German Marquez, but Colorado managed to squeeze out the victory to avoid a three-game sweep. It did not work because a glove is 16 ounces and Arenado is 230 pounds.

All of this started Tuesday when Padres outfielder Manuel Margot was hit in the ribs and then went on the disabled list. Two more plunks in the early innings Wednesday meant Arenado had had enough. Six players in total were ejected from the game after the dust settled.

I've been covering Arenado since his debut in 2013 and have never seen him as heated as he was in reaction to the pitch, immediately spiking his helmet and charging the mound. The big play was Tony Wolters' bases-loaded, two-run single that center fielder Franchy Cordero misplayed to allow another run to score.

The Padres roared back for three runs in the sixth off of right-hander Antonio Senzatela, who had replaced Marquez.

Arenado's reaction in the third woke up the slumbering Colorado bats, with the Rockies scoring five times in the inning to take a lead it wouldn't relinquish in the Major League Baseball game on Wednesday (NZT Thursday). Wade Davis pitched a ideal ninth for his fifth save as the Rockies finished the homestand 2-4..
