Matt Kemp took exception to being plunked with a Julio Teahran pitch in the first inning of today’s Braves-Padres game. To let him know about it, he approached the mound and caused the benches to empty.
It was your typical non-fight baseball fight. That is until umpire Jordan Baker got involved.

In an attempt to keep Kemp away from the object of his ire, Baker grabbed ahold of the Padres outfielder and didn’t let go until one man lay on the ground.
To be fair, Kemp went down like a sack of potatoes after minimal contact. Dude would make a terrible running back.
