One of the bigger brawls in baseball this season occurred during a Triple-A game between the Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers affiliate) and Reno Aces (Diamondbacks) on Saturday, resulting in multiple ejections.
Isotopes infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena was upset after he felt he was thrown at in the top of the second inning by pitcher Mike Bolsinger. He then shoved Aces catcher Blake Lalli after striking out and threw his helmet at another Reno player.

Erisbel Arruebarrena has quickly learned that there are sever consequences for his actions. The infielder was on a rehab assignment when he started the brawl. Now, it looks like he will have to work his way back up to the majors.
On Monday, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers have optioned Arruebarrena to Single-A after he was involved in the brawl.

Naturally, the benches cleared and created quite a scuffle behind home plate and into the first row of the stands. The brawl ended with 10 players being ejected along with Aces manager Phil Nevin.
Per ESPN.com, "The game comes on the heels of the Isotopes' 16-7 rout of Reno on Friday night." Reno won this game 7-3.
