Watch: Pirates-Nationals Game Gets Heated, Rodriguez Held Back

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Things became tense when the Pittsburgh Pirates faced off against the Washington Nationals on Sunday.

A video posted on Twitter by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Stephen J. Nesbitt apparently shows Sean Rodriguez coming after the entire Nationals roster, and “toppling” Gerrit Cole.

He’s quickly held back and calmed down by fellow teammates.

As for what sparked the row? Bob Pompeani reports that Jung-ho Kang made a decoy throw in order to make Bryce Harper slide, and AJ Cole threw a ball at Kang.
