Folks sitting behind the plate got a special, terrifying view Saturday night: an enormous brawl between the Triple-A affiliates of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

ESPN reported that nine players, along with Reno Aces manager and former major league player Phil Nevin, were ejected from the game following the bench-clearing melee.

The fight, between the Aces and the Albuquerque Isotopes, apparently started at the top of the second inning, when Isotopes infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena shoved Aces catcher Blake Lalli and threw his helmet at another Ace.

Arruebarrena was tackled as both teams poured off the benches, and soon the brawl pushed up against the netting separating fans from field.

Frightened spectators caught the fight on video.

Following the fight the game went on, and ESPN reported that the Aces ended up winning 7-3, redeeming themselves from a loss to Albuquerque the night before.
