Washington Nationals And Florida Marlins Brawl Started By Nyjer Morgan...After The Second HBP.

REVENGE!!: Top of the fourth, 14-3 Marlins in a blowout. After a called strike three on the opposing pitcher, Chris Volstad hits Nats' center fielder Nyjer Morgan in the numbers. Morgan's response? He steals second with Ian Desmond up in the next AB, taking out the Marlins' infielder with a hard slide. Then in the same at bat, Morgan steals third. This is insane. Ian Desmond finally pops out to short center. Marlins' second baseman Donnie Murphy goes back for it, makes the grab and lands on his wrist. That didn't look good. Murphy leaves the field holding his wrist up. That's two Marlins in two days who probably had their seasons ended on plays involving Morgan. And because he didn't just take it but had to steal two bases and score after getting hit, it probably isn't over.... 

It's not...Justin Maxwell doubles down the third base line to start the Nats' sixth and that leaves first base open for Nyjer Morgan. Volstad throws at him again. And it's on. Nyjer Morgan charges the mound and throws a left cross at Volstad's head. First baseman Gaby Sanchez clotheslines Morgan, knocking him off his feet. Volstad pounces. Nats' third base coach Pat Listach jumps into the mix. What is he thinking? And the benches clear!!! A full-out brawl on the field. It's madness. Nyjer Morgan's getting pummeled. Nats' Skipper Jim Riggleman and Marlins' Skipper Edwin Rodriguez separate their players and then almost come to blows. Morgan starts in on the fans, gesturing toward the furious crowd and pounding his chest, profanities are flying, Morgan's lost it. The Nats' center fielder has to be held down and guided off the field by the Nats' bullpen coach. Morgan's done. He's officially lost it. Riggleman and Rodriguez are still jawing. Looks like no one got hurt but there are going to be a lot of ejections, fines and suspensions.....
