The Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants already cannot stand each other. That escalated on Tuesday night when Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley got into an altercation during the seventh inning.

With Puig at the plate, he was frustrated that he was not able to hit a high breaking ball into play. After his actions with his bat following the strike, Puig and Hundley went back and forth at each other.

Puig then threw a punch at Hundley.

Then, the two came together and Puig shoved Hundley, according to the video. The announcers, though, said that Hundley shoved Puig first.

The benches cleared. When all heck broke lose, both teams went after each other. Puig’s teammates attempted to hold him back.

While Puig was held back, players from each team continued to battle each other. Dodgers first base coach George Lombard tackled Hundley.

As the brawl was going on, Puig, who was attempting to be held back by his teammates, punched Hundley in the face again. But he never took off his catcher’s mask so Puig hit his mask.

For their actions, both Hundley and Puig were ejected. In addition, these two players will likely be fined or even suspended for their actions in this game. Other players for the Dodgers and Giants may also be fined or suspended once Major League Baseball evaluates the whole situation that happened.
