The Dodgers and Giants entered the game separated by just four games in the standings.

What started off as simple frustration after hitting a foul ball turned into an all-out brawl on Tuesday night between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.

After a scuffle between Nick Hundley and Yasiel Puig in the seventh inning saw both players ejected, Brandon Belt, who returned from the 10-day disabled list today, took Buster Posey's place at first base while Posey shifted behind the plate.

It was the fourth career ejection for Puig, who had also got into a skirmish with Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner in 2014. Hundley said something to him, and then he and Puig were seen exchanging words in front of home plate umpire Eric Cooper. The LA outfielder responded, and when Hundley stood up to continue the conversation, Puig shoved Hundley twice in the chest.

They almost came to blows again before Dodgers bench coach Bob Geren yanked Puig out of the tangle while Giants outfielder Hunter Pence restrained Hundley.
