Scratch Castellanos remained over, flexed and jawed at St. Louis pitcher Jake Woodford subsequent to scoring Saturday, setting off a progression of fights between the Cincinnati Reds and Cardinals that included relievers pushing in the outfield on their way back to the warm-up area.
Castellanos was the lone player shot out in the clash.
Castellanos, who homered on first day of the season and jumped out of the crate prior to throwing his bat, was plunked by Woodford with two outs and none on in the fourth inning. Castellanos recovered the ball and offered to throw it back to Woodford prior to flipping it out of play.
A wild pitch before long sent Castellanos hurrying home from third and he scored with a heedlessly slide for a 7-2 lead, chancing upon Woodford who took the toss from catcher Yadier Molina at the plate.
As Castellanos started leaving, Molina surged up and tapped him from behind, and the seats and warm up areas discharged in a wild scene.
There was really pushing and pushing before request appeared to be reestablished. Yet, as help pitchers for the two groups were making a beeline for their warm up areas, they tangled in the outfield.
Back in 2010, the Cardinals and Reds got into a significant fight at Cincinnati. Molina and Brandon Phillips started yelping at the plate and in the long run Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto got stuck against the fence and attempted to kick out.
