A massive brawl broke out between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers during the eighth inning their matchup Sunday. This won't be a surprise to anyone who remembers the epic bat flip from Blue Jay's Bautista after he hit a go-ahead three-run homer against the Rangers in last year's playoffs.
Tempers started flaring Sunday when Bautista got plunked by Rangers pitcher Matt Bush at the top of the inning. Later in the eighth, Bautista made a takeout slide going into second base, which pissed off Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor.
The two immediately got face-to-face and it looks like Odor got the best of Bautista with a mean right cross. Check it out below.
Mayhem ensued as both teams' benches cleared and a full-on fight broke out.
Bautista was ejected after being cited for a violation of the league’s new takeout slide rule, and the double play was honored as a result.
After the brawl, multiple players and coaches were ejected from the game. And of course, Bautista got the Crying Jordan face treatment from Twitter.
Internet users didn't limit themselves to that one classic, either.
As for the final score, the Rangers won 7-6. Look on the bright side, though, Torontonians, your Raptors are headed to the Eastern Conference Finals.
