Pirates starter Chris Archer threw a 93 miles per hour fastball behind Reds first baseman Derek Dietrich's back to spark the incident. Dietrich dropped his bat and stood in the batter's box and watched the ball clear the fence atop the Clemente Wall and bounce into the Allegheny River. That discussion turned into a bench-clearing incident.

Things between the NL Central rival Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates got a little heated Sunday.

As Bell and the umpire argued, both dugouts emptied and a familiar pushing-and-shoving (but no punching) match arose for a few minutes.

The reaction goes against one of baseball's many unwritten rules that you don't show up a pitcher after scoring a home run. Reds manager David Bell left the dugout when Archer was given a warning rather than a straight ejection. The Reds led 3-2 at the time, but the Pirates scored two runs in the bottom of the fourth to take a 4-3 lead.

The provocative pitch appeared to be retaliation for Dietrich's conduct after smashing a mammoth home run in the second inning.

Puig, who had to be restrained by team-mates, broke free to angrily confront a scrum of Pittsburgh players as tempers flared.

Archer's attempt at sending a message to Dietrich was instead met with a very angry Yasiel Puig. Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez and set-up man Keone Kela were also in the middle of the fray.
