Things got a little heated in Arlington, Texas Sunday during the Texas Rangers–Toronto Blue Jays game.

It all started off when Texas pitcher Matt Bush drilled Toronto’s José Bautista in the arm:

There’s a lot of bad blood between the two teams and it’s assumed Bautista was hit in retaliation for last year’s “bat flip” after a home run in game 5 of the ALDS:

Back to today…

Shortly after getting hit by the pitch, Bautista slid hard into second where more pushing and shoving ensued, resulting in his getting decked by Texas second baseman Rougned Odor:

That was one serious punch:

The Rangers Blue Jays had the last laugh, however, and won the game 7-6.


Editor’s note: We’ve corrected two typo. The Rangers won the game 7-6, not the Blue Jays and Odor is a second baseman, not shortstop.
