A Tense Moment: Phillies and D-backs Benches Clear as Corbin Carroll Gets Hit by Pitch
On August 17th, the Philadelphia Phillies and Arizona Diamondbacks faced off in a regular-season MLB game that got heated in an instant. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Phillies pitcher Hector Neris threw a pitch that hit Diamondbacks’ outfielder Corbin Carroll. The hit-by-pitch led to both benches clearing and players, coaches, and umpires getting involved in the heated altercation.
Benches Clear as Tension Rises
Corbin Carroll was leading off the sixth inning for the Diamondbacks when Phillies pitcher Hector Neris threw a fastball that hit Carroll on his left shoulder. Carroll immediately reacted and headed towards the pitcher’s mound, while Neris also threw his glove and headed towards the outfielder. Within seconds, both benches cleared, and players from both teams and umpires got involved in the altercation.
The Back Story
The hit-by-pitch may have been a result of a previous incident that happened in the fourth inning, where Diamondbacks infielder Josh Rojas was hit by a pitch thrown by Phillies pitcher Ranger Suarez. Rojas was hit by a pitch twice, once on his left hand and then on his back, forcing him to leave the game with a sore left hand. The Diamondbacks expressed their frustration towards the Phillies for the incident, which led to the tension that erupted later in the game.
After the benches were cleared, both teams continued the game, and the Phillies eventually won the game 7-0. However, there may be consequences for the players involved in the altercation. MLB officials are likely to review the incident and determine if it warrants any suspensions or fines for the players involved.
