Rockies star charges the mound and wild brawl breaks out

Rockies star charges the mound and wild brawl breaks out

What ensued was Perdomo throwing his glove, Arenado throwing punches, the benches emptying and all-out mayhem. The clear highlight of the brawl, as seen in the video above, comes after Arenado swings and misses at Perdomo then swiftly turns around as the wind catches him in exactly the right way to reveal a disquieting truth: In addition to his prodigious baseball talents, Nolan Arenado also has really good hair.

The next pitch the Padres threw was the one behind Arenado which led directly to the bench-clearing brawl.

Tensions started bubbling between the two teams Tuesday when Scott Oberg hit Padres outfielder Manuel Margot with a pitch in the ribs, which sent him to the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday. Arenado throws a punch. Arenado, starting pitcher German Marquez and outfielder Gerardo Parra were the Rockies players thrown out of the game.

Not surprisingly, both Perdomo and Arenado were ejected.


Colorado erupted soon after the melee, sending nine hitters to the plate with most of the damage off reliever Buddy Baumann (0-1) when he took over for Perdomo. The big hits were an RBI single by Carlos Gonzalez and a two-run, bases-loaded single by catcher Tony Wolters, who emerged from a deep, early-season slump.

Antonio Senzatela (1-1) struggled over three innings while filling in for Marquez.

Cordero atoned with a solo homer as part of San Diego's three-run the sixth. Wade Davis pitched a ideal ninth for his fifth save as the Rockies finished the homestand 2-4..
