In an epic baseball brawl Sunday, Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista was dealt a devastating blow by Texas Rangers infielder Rougned Odor.
The punch set off a massive brawl between the two teams.
Odor called Bautista out for what he believed to be a late slide at second base. The two exchanged words, but then the encounter turned physical as Odor pushed Bautista, who moved toward Odor. At that moment, Odor unleashed a vicious right hook that landed squarely on Bautista's face, nearly sending the Blue Jays player to the ground.
