The benches cleared and the dugouts emptied.

The brawl was the second scuffle of the game. 

In the third inning, Austin slid into second base, catching shortstop Brock Holt's leg with his spikes. The two shouted at each other and Austin had to be restrained as players spilled onto the field. There were no ejections at the time. 

Earlier in the day, there was a benches-clearing brawl at Coors Field after the Rockies Nolan Arenado charged the mound. Five players were ejected.
