2010 Spring Training - null
Sights & Sounds
Spring Training Info
Tempers flared briefly at the end of the sixth inning, after Brewers third baseman Casey McGehee struck out with the bases loaded. Dodgers reliever Ramon Colon pumped his fist after the inning-ending whiff and McGehee took issue. The benches cleared, and Fielder had to be restrained, but no punches were thrown.Afterwards, McGehee and Colon met outside the visitors clubhouse, where they patched things up.
"To me, it's not a big deal,"McGehee said. "He got excited, I got excited. He told me where he was coming from and I told him where I was coming from.
"There's a lot more important stuff to get [ticked] off about than a Spring Training game."
Colon agreed. "Things happen in the game," he said. "We talked, and he understands. Bases loaded, I'm trying to make the team. We played together in the Minors in 2008, when I was with Kansas City. He saw the way I pitched. I respect the game."
The whole scene took Dodgers manager Don Mattingly by surprise.
"They were a little fired up. I don't know if I've ever seen the benches clear in a Spring Training game. I didn't expect to see everyone run out.
"I thought it'd just be between Colon and Casey."
Nevertheless, Mattingly understood.
"Colon was just excited to show what he can do, coming back from 2-and-0. I can understand both sides."
Up next for Dodgers: The Dodgers will be a little more whole when they host the Mariners on Wednesday, in a 12:05 PT game at Camelback Ranch. James Loney and Jamey Carroll, out several days with a swollen left knee and a bruised right index finger, respectively, are both expected back in the lineup. Left-hander Hong-Chih Kuo, who has yet to pitch in an effort to reduce stress on his arm, is also expected to see action. Jon Garland will get the start, his second; he hurled three innings of one-hit ball against the Giants on Friday, allowing an unearned run.Up next for Brewers: Randy Wolf will make his second spring start against the D-backs in the Brewers' first visit to Salt River Fields, the sparkling new spring home shared by Arizona and Colorado. But the big news will probably be made earlier in the day back at Maryvale Baseball Park, where manager Ron Roenicke may be ready to make public his pitching rotation to start the season.
