The Mets and Cardinals cleared benches and entered a scrum on Wednesday afternoon in St. Louis.
What triggered it you might ask? Well, what else than another Met being struck in the video game. Genesis Cabrera, on a 3-2 pitch in the top of the 8th inning, tossed a fastball straight into J.D. Davis‘ foot and he needed to come out of the video game due to the fact that of it.
The next inning, Yoan Lopez‘s very first pitch for the Mets was up and in on Nolan Arenado, and he instantly took exception, shouting at Lopez, and the benches cleared quickly after.
Arenado was ultimately ejected from the video game after the scrum was separated, though Lopez had the ability to continue pitching.
The Mets have actually now been struck by a pitch 19 times in 20 video games.
Both of these groups likewise play once again soon, as the Cardinals are set up to take a trip to Queens for a May 16-19 series.
