ROYALS AND ORIOLES CLEAR THE BENCHES

Maybe the NRL’s no-punching edict has starved us, but the Commentary Box Sports team were pretty excited about the latest round of baseball fisticuffs.

Only a few weeks after Toronto Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista and Texas Rangers’ Rougned Odor sparked an all-in brawl, the MLB has witnessed another bench-clearing melee.

When Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura beaned Manny Machado, the Baltimore Orioles hitter charged the mound and attacked Ventura.

The Royals fielders pulled Machado off the pitcher, before the Orioles raced out of the dugout and came to their teammate’s aid.
