Yordano Ventura Sparks Royals-White Sox Brawl

Days after nearly getting murdered on a baseball diamond by Mike Trout, Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura successfully started a fight after taunting Adam Eaton following the White Sox outfielder’s come-backer. Some haymakers were thrown—a rarity in a baseball brawl—but few landed.

As you can tell, though, Hawk enjoyed himself. Five players were ejected: Ventura, Edinson Volquez, and Lorenzo Cain from the Royals and Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija from the White Sox.
