Joey Bautista got caught looking...with the hardest strike thrown all season 😳https://t.co/vl2UB1XUfu— Fanly (@fanly) May 15, 2016
Long story short:
-Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays was hit by a 98mph fastball by Rangers pitcher Matt Bush.
[Many believe this was retaliation for Bautistas epic bat flip in the ALDS vs. the Rangers last year]
-Instead of letting his team get retaliation later in the inning, he took it upon himself and slid into second base in an attempt to take out Odor to break up a double play.
-Odor wasn't having it, decked Bautista and the benches cleared. What ensued was a good ol' bench clearing brawl.
Judging from postgame interviews, Jose seems to be okay and said Odor caught him off guard but he "got him good". You ate it like a champ, Joey.
Favorite sports fights? Aside from the legendary Malice at the Palace, I'm a fan of Canada vs. Mexico in the WBC.
