PIRATES: Tempers Flare as the Pirates and Reds Benches Clear in 4th Inning

Ya know the old say..."I went to a baseball game, and a hockey broke out"? Yeah, well it just happened again at PNC Park.

Bucco pitcher Chris Archer took offense of Cincy's Derek Dietrich staring at home run he hit earlier in the game. Archer let his Dietrich know his displeasure the next time he was at the plate by throwing a pitch behind the Red's left fielder.

Reds manager David Bell rightfully ran out to bark at the umpires about the potentially harmful pitch and when it became clear that the situation wasn't going to be resolved by shouting, the benches cleared.
