Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp struck out swinging to end the eighth inning last night but Colorado Rockies catcher Yorvit Torrealba dropped the pitch. Torrealba tagged Kemp out, Kemp took umbrage with the manner in which he was tagged, and a brawl erupted.
The Dodgers ended up losing the game, their ninth loss in the past twelve games. Think this brawl will spark them to go on some crazy winning streak and catch the slumping Diamondbacks? Yeah, me neither.
