    Dayton Bottom 1st

    Justin Reed walks.

    Zachary Cozart hit by pitch. Justin Reed to 2nd.

    Offensive Substitution: Pinch runner Kevyn Feiner replaces Zachary Cozart.

    Neftali Soto strikes out swinging.

    Brandon Waring singles on a ground ball to pitcher Julio Castillo. Justin Reed to 3rd. Kevyn Feiner to 2nd.

    Peoria Chiefs second baseman Gian Guzman left the game due to an injured leg.

    Defensive Substitution: Jake Opitz replaces second baseman Gian Guzman, batting 9th, playing second base.

    Denis Phipps doubles (18) on a line drive to right fielder Cliff Andersen. Justin Reed scores. Kevyn Feiner scores. Brandon Waring to 3rd.

    Devin Mesoraco singles on a line drive to center fielder Jonathan Wyatt. Brandon Waring scores. Denis Phipps scores.

    Angel Cabrera hit by pitch. Devin Mesoraco to 2nd.

    Keltavious Jones grounds into a force out, second baseman Jake Opitz to shortstop Nate Samson. Devin Mesoraco to 3rd. Angel Cabrera out at 2nd. Keltavious Jones to 1st.
    On-field Delay.
    What caused the fight? Cozart may well have been the guy hit in the head, because he left the game. Then the second basemen is injured? Spikes up slide, perhaps? Cabrerra is hit by a pitch, then all hell breaks loose on a ground out. Maybe a second malicious slide at second?

    The Dayton game just now resumed. 1 hour, 9 minute delay.

    Plus, a five minute delay for Cozart, and a twenty minute delay for Guzman, who broke his leg.

    Fifteen ejections, apparently overruled by the commisioner or whatever, because he didn't want pitchers playing the outfield.

    Lotzkar out after the delay.

    Bench-clearing brawl started after batters hit by pitches
    By Marc Katz

    Staff Writer

    Thursday, July 24, 2008

    DAYTON A first-inning four-run rally quickly escalated into a bench-clearing brawl between the Dayton Dragons and Peoria Chiefs tonight at Fifth Third Field, and that was after Dayton shortstop Zack Cozart had to leave the game after being hit in the head with a pitch and Peoria second baseman Gian Guzman went out with a broken left leg.

    Trouble may have started in the top of the inning when Dayton pitcher Kyle Lotzkar hit the second batter, Nate Samson.

    That half inning ended without further incident, but when Cozart came to bat as Dayton's second batter with a runner on first he was drilled in the left side of the helmet by a Julio Castillo pitch.

    Cozart fell to the ground immediately and eventually was helped to the dugout, finished for the evening.

    Following an out, Brandon Waring then hit a slow roller toward second that Castillo tried to field. Guzman ran up behind him and fell over Castillo, breaking his leg. He had to be removed by stretcher.

    That loaded the bases and Denis Phipps hit a pop fly half way down the right field line that bounced sideways into the stands for a ground rule double, scoring two runs. Catcher Devin Mesoraco then singled home two more runs.

    Dayton's next batter, Angel Cabrera, was hit with a pitch, reacting angrily by throwing his bat and batting gloves toward his dugout. When Keltavious Jones, Dayton's next batter, hit a grounder to second, Cabrera slid into second, legs high, to break up the double play.

    Now Peoria shortstop Nate Samson reacted angrily, gesturing it was too rough a slide.

    Castillo then threw a pitch close to Brandon Menchaca's head, prompting Dayton manager Donnie Scott to leave the third base coaching box and complain to home plate umpire Tyler Wilson.

    That prompted interim Peoria manager Carmelo Martinez to join the conversation, which quickly became heated, and when Martinez pushed Scott, the benches emptied. Several fights broke out behind home plate, and Castillo threw a ball that sailed into the stands behind the Dragons' dugout, hitting a fan who had to be taken to a hospital.

    Menchaca jumped on Castillo and eventually both managers and 15 players including eight Dragons were ejected from the game.

    Those ejected from the Dragons were starting outfielders Justin Reed and Phipps, Kevin Feiner (who was taking the place of Cozart), starting catcher Devin Mesoraco and pitchers Henry Arias, Jeremy Horst, Jeff Jeffords and Luis Montano.

    Peoria lost five starters, including outfielders Brandon Guyer and Cliff Anderson, catcher Mario Mercedes, third baseman Jovan Rosa and Castillo as well as pitchers Steve Vento and Audy Santana.

    The managers started the physical altercation? That's crazy!

    And, I'll reiterate, all of the ejections were overruled, and all players who were ejected are back in the game.

    Man the Reds are sure developing some fiery young players considering Chatt's fight a few weeks ago. Although it sounds like an ugly scene, it's sort of nice to see and can help build some camaraderie with the youngsters..
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"

    At least the pitchers in the minors are sticking up for their batters. When's the last time a Reds pitcher threw what appeared to be an intentional bean ball at an opposing hitter? I don't remember any this year at all.

    Ryne Sandberg is their manager, but he's in Cooperstown this week. That's why Carmelo Martinez is the interim skipper.

    Wow.

    I hope Castillo gets suspended for the season for throwing a ball as a weapon during the fight that went into the stands. I would also like to see criminal charges filed.
