As everyone on the field began to seemingly calm down, Arenado and Padres catcher A.J. Ellis were engaged in a confrontation and had to be separated.
By that time, players from both teams had reached the scene and a real scuffle ensued, with more punches thrown and multiple players swinging and grappling. Ellis had given chase to Arenado all the way to the mound and over the third base. That feeling only intensified when Trevor Story was plunked with two outs in the first inning by Perdomo. It's safe to assume the pitch was retaliatory in nature as Padres outfielder Manuel Margot took a 95 miles per hour heater to the ribs on Tuesday.
It happened during the third inning when Nolan Arenado was at the plate.
The Rockies' Arenado, righthanded pitcher German Marquez and left fielder Gerardo Parra were ejected.
The Padres had taken notice of the Rockies pitchers throwing inside in the series' previous two games, both won by the Padres.
