Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura drilled Orioles shortstop Manny Machado in the bottom half of the fifth inning Tuesday night.
Which sparked arguably the most violent brawl of the 2016 MLB season. (VIDEO: Rougned Odor Crushes Jose Bautista With A Vicious Right Hook)
Though he’s only in his third full season in the bigs, Ventura is known as an instigator.
He’s had past issues with Mike Trout and Brett Lawrie and had even thrown at Machado earlier in the game.
Both parties were tossed after the fight, but the Orioles would go on to trounce Kansas City, 9-1.
