Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig hit the game-winning home run on Friday night against the Miami Marlins, capping what was a two-home run evening that led to a Dodgers victory. Marlins starter Jose Urena wasted no time with a fastball on the first pitch that Puig saw on Saturday, nearly drilling him in the hip.

Puig was having none of that, leading to both benches clearing.

There is precedent here though: the two teams got into it earlier this year when Miami manager Don Mattingly was peeved about Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager swinging at a 3-0 pitch in a 5-0 game.
