The latest dust-up in the rivalry was sparked when Pittsburgh's Keone Kela threw up-and-in to Derek Dietrich in the seventh.

Pirates starter Joe Musgrove, who combined for nine shutout innings in two previous appearances against the Reds this season, went six innings on Tuesday, allowing two runs on solo homers by Joey Votto and Jose Iglesias.

A fight broke out at a Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates game on Tuesday night after Reds pitcher Amir Garrett charged towards the Pirates' dugout.

MLB.com, citing unnamed Major League Baseball sources, was among multiple media outlets reporting that Puig was traded to the Cleveland Indians as part of a three-team deal in which the Indians will send pitcher Trevor Bauer to Cincinnati.

Puig, it turns out, was playing in his last game with the Reds.

In all, six players were ejected, including Puig and Garrett, both of whom were also ejected for their roles in the April brawl.

Kentucky's Kelly Craft confirmed as US Ambassador to UN
The Senate confirmed Trump nominee Kelly Knight Craft on Wednesday as the US ambassador to the United Nations. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recommended her for the ambassadorship to President Donald Trump.

As the trade was being finalized, Puig's final few moments in a Reds uniform were seemingly memorable.

Then before the fight, Jared Hughes was ejected for hitting Starling Marte, as was Freddie Benavides. "I was just doing my part".

"I can't change anybody's perception, but I can let my actions speak to be an advocate for trying to make this better and getting it out of the way of the game, because this is not why we play the game", Hurdle said.

After the initial scuffle settled down, Reds manager David Bell emerges from the middle of the pack as some Pirates personnel and a Reds player are shown holding him back as rage skipped across his face.

During the start of the season, he became a living symbol of the Reds' new direction - one leaders hoped would reverse the tailspin of 2018. Puig was ultimately ejected, as well. He was put in a headlock by Pirates hitting coach Rick Eckstein, got himself out, and shouted at Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. You hope it's over. "Today was pretty bad for us, pretty bad for baseball, pretty bad for everybody".

Puig, who has now been ejected an MLB-high three times this season, received an ovation from the fans in Cincinnati as he left the field following word he was being traded away. Kela had some words for the Cincinnati dugout as he left the mound, then said after the game, "People could say it's overdue". The teams close out their series Wednesday. "We don't take lightly what happened tonight".
