Kemp, Chirinos fight leads to Dodgers-Rangers brawl

14 June 2018

Kemp was attempting to score on a hit to right field and he attempted to bulldoze the catcher on his way in.

Benches cleared in the bottom of the third inning of Wednesday's game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers after Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp plowed into Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos. Chirinos caught a pinpoint throw by Nomar Mazara and had his glove out to tag Kemp.

Matt Kemp attempted to run through Robinson Chirinos before the Dodgers-Rangers game descended to chaos.

After Kemp was tagged out to end the inning, Chirinos got up and shoved him.

Kemp then shoved Chirinos more rigorously, and the benches emptied. Dodgers coach George Lombard was restraining first baseman Joey Gallo, and closer Keone Kela led the charge of Rangers relievers from the bullpen and made his presence known.

No punches were thrown.

Kemp was ruled out with no catcher interference, and both players were ejected from the game. In this play, the throw home took Chirinos directly into Kemp's path home.
