Benches Clear After Josh Donaldson, Keone Kela Exchange Swears In ALDS

Things got a little tense between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers during Game 2 of the American League Division Series on Friday.

Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson crushed a ball during the 13th inning and stood at home plate admiring his blast as it sailed foul. Rangers pitcher Keone Kela wasn’t a big fan of Donaldson’s reaction, and he let the third baseman know it.

Then the benches cleared after the two exchanged swears. Ultimately, no punches were thrown, but it was a pretty tense situation.

The Rangers tacked on two runs in the 14th inning to win the game 6-4 and take a two-games-to-zero lead in the best-of-five series.
