Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig and San Francisco Giants catcher Nick Hundley were ejected from Tuesday night’s game following a physical altercation in the bottom of the seventh inning at Dodger Stadium.
It started when Puig slapped at his bat in frustration after fouling off a pitch—which seemed to irk Hundley. Hundley then apparently had some choice words for Puig before the two exchanged shoves as the benches cleared.

Buster Posey, who started the game at first base, replaced Hundley behind home plate. Austin Barnes finished Puig’s at bat, and Joc Pederson entered the game in left field in the top of the eighth, with Matt Kemp moving from left to right.
Puig and Hundley will be subject to discipline from Major League Baseball in the form of fines and suspensions once the incident is reviewed.
