After getting into a shouting match earlier with Sean Rodriguez, tough guy John Lackey hit Matt Joyce. Joyce took exception to the beaning and yelled out to Lackey. Jarrod Saltalamacchia then intervened and started shoving Joyce. At that point the benches cleared.

No punches were thrown. But look for Jose Molina (in a windbreaker). Nobody was more heated than Molina.

Update: This all apparently came about because Lackey was upset that Joyce “pimped” a long foul ball that Joyce thought was a home run. He dropped his bat and that was enough to piss off Lackey. Here’s the full sequence including Joyce’s home run and his long foul ball. The benches empty at the 0:58 mark…

    I'd love to see Jose move that quickly down the first base line.
