Nolan Arenado charges Padres' Luis Perdomo after message pitch

Prized Rockies prospect Ryan Mc Mahon has that left-out feeling

Colorado hiked its lead to 6-3 in the bottom of the frame on Ian Desmond's sacrifice fly to score DJ LeMahieu, who led off with a double and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Senzatela.

All of this started Tuesday when Padres outfielder Manuel Margot was hit in the ribs and then went on the disabled list. Arenado took immediate offense and charged the mound.

After both teams had hit batters, the Padres' Luis Perdomo threw behind the Rockies' Nolan Arenado, leading Arenado to charge the mound. That feeling only intensified when Trevor Story was plunked with two outs in the first inning by Perdomo.

That set the stage for Arenado, who didn't take kindly to a pitch that almost grazed his back.

Tensions boiled over at Coors Field Wednesday afternoon between the Colorado Rockies and the San Diego Padres. Arenado kept trying to punch the pitcher as the benches cleared and the relievers sprinted in from the bullpen. Eventually, Arenado caught up to the backpedaling Perdomo and unleashed a right hook.

Five players were ejected for taking part in the melee. The big hits were an RBI single by Carlos Gonzalez and a two-run, bases-loaded single by catcher Tony Wolters, who emerged from a deep, early-season slump.

But now Arenado, Perdomo, German Marquez, Gerardo Parra, and A.J. Ellis were thrown out as the Rockies hope to take down the Padres in Denver. Eric Hosmer hit his first homer as a member of the Padres in the eighth. Closer Wade Davis pitched a ideal ninth, with two strikeouts, to record his fifth overall save, his first at Coors Field.
