Don Mattingly, Mark McGwire own D-Backs coaches during crazy brawl (Video)

Six people were ejected from Tuesday’s Los Angeles Dodgers-Arizona Diamondbacks game after the teams got into a massive brawl following three batters getting hit.

Things began in the bottom of the sixth inning when Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy hit Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig on a 1-2 fastball with the D-backs up 2-0. Puig was checked out by the trainers for a few minutes and remained in the game.

In the top of the seventh, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke got revenge by hitting D-backs catcher Miguel Montero to start the inning. After that point, you figure everything was settled. But it wasn’t — Kennedy then dosed Greinke in the head in the bottom of the seventh, leading to the benches clearing. After that point, there were a solid two and a half minutes of fighting that featured some amazing moments.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly took down Arizona coach Alan Trammell; Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire raged on D-backs coach Matt Williams; and Dodgers relief pitcher J.P. Howell nearly tossed D-backs coach Turner Ward over the top rope.

After it was all done, Mark McGwire, Yasiel Puig, Ronald Belisario, Ian Kennedy, Turner Ward and Kirk Gibson were all ejected from the game.

Here are some images and GIFs capturing the wildest moments of the fight.
