Watch: Dodgers, Rangers fight after collision at plate

Dodgers Rangers fight

A fight broke out on Wednesday night between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers after a collision at the plate.

Matt Kemp was on second with two outs and was trying to score on a single to right. As he approached the plate, Robinson Chirinos was holding the ball in his way, so Kemp tried to knock him over. Kemp gave Chirinos a shove, and players from both sides came in to get involved.

Both Kemp and Chirinos were ejected from the game.

Based on the new rules, Kemp was wrong for initiating contact; Chirinos was holding the ball and therefore had a right to be in front of the plate.
