Nolan Arenado, Luis Perdomo spur wild basebrawl between Rockies and Padres

Nolan Arenado, Luis Perdomo spur wild basebrawl between Rockies and Padres

Padres starting pitcher Luis Perdomo was the first to throw a ball behind a batter this season as he zipped a 96-mph fastball at Nolan Arenado, and the Rockies' All-Star reacted instantly. Things started Tuesday night, when San Diego's Manuel Margot was hit unintentionally but landed on the disabled list with bruised ribs.

That's when Arenado charged the mound... seconds later Perdomo threw his mitt at Arenado's head.

On the first pitch in the third, Arenado leaned out of the way to avoid the ball hitting him in the back and immediately took off for the mound. Two more plunks in the early innings Wednesday meant Arenado had had enough.

That set the stage for Arenado, who didn't take kindly to a pitch that almost grazed his back.

Tensions boiled over between the Colorado Rockies and the San Deigo Padres Wednesday afternoon, stemming from a series of hit batsmen on both teams. Arenado kept trying to punch the pitcher as the benches cleared and the relievers sprinted in from the bullpen.

Perdomo and Ellis were the only Padres ejected from the game.

Colorado's Gerardo Parra and German Marquez also were ejected, along with Padres catcher A.J. Ellis. Tony Wolters hit a bases-loaded, two-run single that center fielder Franchy Cordero misplayed to allow another run to score. Closer Wade Davis pitched a flawless ninth, with two strikeouts, to record his fifth overall save, his first at Coors Field.
