Brewers, Pirates trade blows in Easter brawl

The Brewers and Pirates don’t like eachother. This is nothing new — the two sides have had their fair share of fights in the past. The latest incident came this afternoon, when Carlos Gomez stared at what he thought was a home run and flipped his bat for what ended up being a triple off the wall. Gerrit Cole took exception, and Gomez — who has a history of not taking pitcher confrontation well — started jawing back. The benches cleared in a hurry, with Travis Snider taking Gomez down before getting blasted with a closed fist from Martin Maldonado and getting taken down by Rickie Weeks. Gomez, Snider and Brewers bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected. Cole remained in the game.
