Rays and Sox had the benches clear in the Rays win 7-4. Rays player got hit, Red Sox threw behind a Rays player, then Luke Scott gets pegged in the leg and the benches clear.
Joe Maddon seemed furious after the game during the press conference, calling the actions by the Red Sox "absurd" and "idiotic." Valentine responded by saying "boys will be boys."
Seems like the Red Sox sure like to clear their benches a lot.
I saw this on SC this morning, but they did a poor job of setting it up - So a Rays player gets hit, then a Rays player has a pitch thrown behind him, then another Ras player gets hit (Luke Scott)? That's absurd. Scott should have full on charged the mound at that point. I'm with Maddon, that is completely idiotic and classless by the Sox.
