Dodgers' Puig and Kemp get into altercation in dugout
Tuesday September 16th, 2014

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig were caught on camera getting into a verbal argument in the middle of the team's game against the Colorado Rockies on Monday.

In the sixth inning, Kemp went back to the dugout after striking out and was seen heading in Puig's direction and yelling at him before Dodgers manager Don Mattingly stepped between them.

Kemp turned around and walked toward the clubhouse after the argument. The Dodgers scored eight runs in the sixth to break open the game before winning 11-3. 

Neither Kemp nor Mattingly would say what started the argument. 

"Oh, just talking in the dugout, same old things," Mattingly said, according to "We're like the [Oakland] A's, the '72 A's. Just family stuff, family business."

With the victory, the Dodgers' lead in the National League West is now four games over the San Francisco Giants. Their magic number to clinch the division is nine.
