Benches Clear in Brawl at UC Riverside Baseball Game

Fight captured on video

Two UC Riverside baseball players were ejected from Friday's away game at Sacramento State following a bench-clearing brawl.

In the third inning, UCR shortstop Eddie Young was caught in a rundown between second and third base.

Sac State second baseman Andrew Ayers made the tag and then appeared to shove Young.

After the tag, Ayers said something to Young, who responded with a right hook to the infielder's jaw.

The benches cleared and both Ayers and Young were ejected. UCR's catcher Drake Zarate was also tossed from the game.

All three players will be reportedly suspended for four games, Sacramento State spokesman Brian Berger told the Sacramento Bee.

The UCR Highlanders went on to win 2-1 over the Hornets.
