Tempers had been boiling in St. Louis


April 27, 2022

Benches cleared in the eighth inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game between the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets as Nolan Arenado was not pleased with an up-and-in pitch from Yoan López.

According to the SNY broadcast, tempers had been boiling even before New York outfielder J.D. Davis was hit by a pitch in the top half of the frame. Arenado started barking back at López after the right-hander went high and tight, which brought the benches out.

Arenado, who was traded to the Cardinals this offseason, threw Mets catcher Tomas Nido out of his way while New York’s Pete Alonso was pulled to the ground in the skirmish.

Arenado was thrown out of the game, but the Cardinals pulled out a 10-5 victory.
