— Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell and outfielder Yasiel Puig were ejected from Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates after a benches-clearing brawl between the two teams in the top of the fourth inning.

After Pirates starter Chris Archer threw a pitch behind the Reds’ Derek Dietrich, both Archer and the Reds were given warnings by the home plate umpire. Bell came out of the dugout to protest the warning and the benches cleared. Puig had to be held back during the melee then eventually went after some Pirates players.
Reds reliever Amir Garrett also was ejected.
Two Pirates relief pitchers -- Keone Kela and Felipe Vazquez -- were thrown out.
Dietrich hit a long home run off Archer in the first inning.
