The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers were involved in a bench-clearing incident during Friday’s game.

During the eighth inning, Brewers shortstop Hernan Perez bunted a pitch that was fielded by Cardinals pitcher Jordan Hicks. Hicks threw to second base to record the force out of runner Eric Sogard, who collided with shortstop Yairo Munoz. Sogard seemed unhappy with the contact and the two appeared to exchange words. The dugouts and bullpens of both teams emptied in response.

Order was restored in short order. There were no punches thrown and no one was ejected. Among those trying to break things up was Hicks, whose throw appeared to lead Munoz into Sogard.
