Ay, Dios mio! We got a good old fashioned bench-clearing brawl yesterday between the Mets and Cardinals! These two teams have apparently rekindled their rivalry from the ’80’s with these last few days of intense baseball!
The brawl occurred yesterday in the Mets’ 10 to 5 loss to St. Louis. After multiple Mets were hit in the series….the Mets pitched high-and-inside to the Cardinals’ Nolan Arenado. Arenado took offense and a fight erupted!
Check out the videos below showing the action! For the record, the Mets were in the right! The Cardinals had already hit Met superstar Pete Alonso in the head earlier in the series! Sorry, St. Louis! You hit the Mets’ star…they hit YOUR star! Dems the rules!
This has been another Opinionated Sports Opinion From East Side Dave!

The real star of the Cardinals/Mets brawl was Cardinals reliever Giovanny Gallegos who hopped the bullpen fence instead of using the stairs 😂 pic.twitter.com/7eRfnWy3Qf— Breaking Bats Podcast (@BreakingBatsPod) April 27, 2022
