The Reds landed Trevor Bauer on Tuesday night while playing against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Moments later, a brawl erupted on the field after pitcher Amir Garrett charged the Pirates’ dugout and tried to take on the whole team without a second thought.
Garrett seemed to take offense to whatever the Pirates were saying during his mound visit. It might have had something to do with the fact that there was a mound visit when the score was 11-3 with two outs in the ninth, but there’s no way to be sure at this point. Tensions had been simmering all game, and it all came to a head with one out to go.
This was an impressive display of bravado, even for a good old-fashioned baseball brawl. Garrett went after his man with no regard for the backup he would no doubt need in short order. New teammate Bauer will surely love him.
