Jonathan Papelbon And Bryce Harper Brawl In Nationals Dugout

Illustration for article titled Jonathan Papelbon And Bryce Harper Brawl In Nationals Dugout

The Nationals are really deteriorating as their season comes to an end. They somehow have a winning record, but the dugout has gotten downright toxic. Just this week, Papelbon plunked Manny Machado then Bryce Harper called him out for it. Today, tensions boiled over and the two got into a fight in the dugout after Papelbon laid into Harper after he apparently didn’t run out a pop out to first.

Harper kind of prophesied this fight earlier this week, saying:

“I don’t know. I’ll probably get drilled tomorrow. We’ll see what happens.”

Papelbon continued pitching after the fight and he gave up a walk and a homer.
