BALTIMORE (AP) – The benches were cleared during the seventh inning of Baltimore’s game against Toronto on Tuesday night after Orioles’ cutthroat Bryan Baker appeared to gesture with his hand toward the bow of the boat. by Blue Jays.
Baker hit Matt Chapman to the end of the first part of season seven, then appeared to give a “chick” sign with his hand. Players from both benches were quickly on the field, and players joined them.
The situation hasn’t escalated too much since then, although Vladimir Guerrero Jr has been particularly agitated with the Blue Jays. Cool heads prevailed, and as the player walked back to the cowshed, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” was played at Camden Yards.
However, at the end of the seventh half, Blue Jays interim coach John Schneider was sent off and then out to give referee Jeff Nelson a slap.
There is a history between Toronto and Nelson, who knocked out Charlie Montoyo, the former Blue Jays manager, from a game in April after Montoyo had problems with his attacking area.
