Strickland's Beanball Ignites a BaseBrawl in Holiday loss to Nats

Bryce Harper launched one of these team fights between his Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants on Memorial Day, but in his rage he did something so ridiculous that social media ended having a field day ragging on it. Hill (2-2) recovered from a bout of wildness in his last start to pitch five innings, giving up one run and two hits.

In what can only be described as an incredibly self-serving and stupid maneuver, Strickland rocketed a 98-mph fastball at Bryce Harper's hip, making contact on the first pitch. Honestly, we can't say for sure yet whether Strickland hit Harper with the pitch on objective, but these two have a little history. Harper also attempted to throw his helmet at Strickland but it looked to slip out of his hand as he was cocking back.

Both benches stormed the mound and a massive brawl broke out before the 6-foot-4, 220 lb right-hand relief pitcher had to be manhandled by his Giants teammates so he wouldn't try to go back.

It took three large teammates to drag the agitated Strickland off the field after the fracas, which featured a brief toe-to-toe between the combatants, both landing glancing blows to each other's face. That's when Harper hit two monster home runs off Strickland. However, the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants will meet again later in the summer, beginning on Friday, August 11th. The defending World Series champion Cubs have lost six straight road games. (Strickland) probably took exception to that, " Baker said.

"After it happened I saw Harper point and the next thing you know he's going out after them", Posey said. He should be thinking about wearing the ring home every single night. "Mostly to go inside, and obviously I got it in a little bit too far".

Leo Varadkar made his foray into Irish politics when he was 22 and was elected to the parliament when he was 27. He wants to reform tax laws for the self-employed, and create a ban on strikes for "essential" public workers.

The Nationals went on to win the game 3-0. "A baseball's a weapon, and to be able to use that to his advantage, what do you want to do in that situation?"

Despite respecting Strickland for where he threw, Harper said he isn't sure why the Giants reliever is holding a grudge.

The Nationals were leading the Giants 2-0 at the time of the hit-by-pitch.

Ryan Zimmerman gave the Nats (31-19) the only run they'd need, smashing a solo shot off Moore to lead off the second.

Their meeting on Monday was the first matchup between the two since that four-game series, and Strickland went into the at-bat with a plan. He experienced blurry vision but stayed in the game, Bochy said. The Giants went on to win that series and 3-1 and the Nationals have failed to reach the postseason since.
