it's with the dodgers "and" when we win! giants beat l-a in game one so you know the dodgers were probably extra edgy goin in to last night's game.. in the bottom of the 7th with the giants up 1 to nothing. yasiel puig foul's off the pitch... and let's giants catcher nick hundly get in to his head.. puig shoves hundley then takes a swing at him and the benches clear bedlam ensues... hundley is eventually thrown to the ground. after everything settles down...the ump throws them "both" out of the game. seems unfair but that's what the principal does right? two kids fight they're boths suspended. giants didn't start it but they finished it!! after the brawl... the dodgers came back to tie the game in the 8th inning. but then for the 2nd game in a row... the giants would come back in the 9th and take the lead. they win by a final of 2 to 1.
