Bench-clearing brawl in Rockies-Padres game showcases Nolan Arenado's fabulous hair

VIDEO: Arenado Charges Mound, Sparking Brawl

The Rockies And Padres Gave Us Our First All-Out Baseball Brawl Of The 2018 Season

San Diego right-hander Luis Perdomo threw a pitch behind Arenado's back to ignite an already simmering situation.

The Rockies All-Star third baseman threw his bat and helmet to the side and rushed the mound in anger, believing the wild pitch was the Padres pitcher's retaliation for a number of hit batsmen in the series between the two teams.

Once things calmed down, the umpires made a decision to crack the whip and eject Perdomo, Ellis, Arenado, Marquez and Parra. Austin has received a five-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for charging the mound and fighting. "I didn't like it - they thought they had to do something, but I had to do something too - that's kind of why I went out there". A pair of San Diego players were tossed: Perdomo and Elllis. As such, it was no surprise the Padres plunked Rockies shortstop Trevor Story in the first inning.

Yikes. Arenado might make consistent contact at the plate, but he apparently is nothing but swings and misses when it comes to throwing punches.

Benches cleared briefly in the third after the spikes of New York's Tyler Austin clipped Brock Holt's leg on a slide into second base.

Then with the Yankees leading 10-6 in the seventh, Kelly caught Austin on the side with a 98 miles per hour fastball.
