Tough times in the minor league, apparently.

On Saturday night, a crazy amount of punches were thrown in a massive fight between the Reno Aces (the Triple-A affiliate of the Diamondbacks) and Albuquerque Isotopes (the Triple-A team for the Dodgers) -- because nothing is more intimidating than an isotope (sarcasm font). The teams are scheduled to play again on Sunday and once more on Monday. Yikes. 

Check the box score here for the laundry list of ejections. 

See below for the fight that was posted to Instagram. 

Just 24 hours earlier, a bench-clearing brawl broke out between the Double-A Jacksonville Suns -- the Marlins' affiliate -- and the Birmingham Barons -- the White Sox affiliate -- which was captured in the YouTube video up top.  

For good measure, there should be a Suns-Aces and Barons-Isotopes match Sunday night. The winner advances to the MLB as an expansion team.
