Benches cleared twice in one inning during the Cleveland Indians 11-9 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night resulting in player and manager ejections.
Royals starter Jonathan Sanchez hit Cleveland outfielder Shin-Soo Choo with a pitch causing benches to clear in the top of the third.
No one was ejected and play resumed but tension remained between the teams and spilled over to the bottom of the inning.
In the bottom of the third Indians starter Jeanmar Gomez hit Mike Moustakes, Plate umpire Gary Darling ejected Gomez, third baseman Jack Hannahan and manager Manny Acta and both benches cleared once again.
Manager Acta has been ejected seven times now in his career.
