South Bend Cubs involved in benches-clearing brawl


While the Cubs wrapped up a win over the Pirates on Tuesday, one of their Single-A affiliates was involved in a benches-clearing brawl.

A skirmish broke out in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game between the Fort Wayne TinCaps and South Bend Cubs. Video of the incident:

In another angle of the conflict, a member of the TinCaps can be seen throwing a baseball towards the South Bend scrum.

When the dust settled, Cubs pitcher Brandon Hughes, catcher Jake Washer and manager Michael Ryan were ejected. TinCaps second baseman Kelvin Melean was also ejected.

South Bend went on to win 12-10, but that's not the last these two clubs will see of each other this week. They're playing every day through Sunday.
