Benches Clear at Petco Park

It was a rare dust up between managers at Petco Park Friday night when Padres manager Andy Green and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts got into a heated argument after the first inning.

Both managers were meeting with umpires after both benches were warned in the bottom of the first inning. Belief is that Dodgers pitcher Alex Wood accused Padres base runner Jose Pirela, who was on second, of stealing signs.

Things escalated quickly when Green made a comment to Roberts and Roberts ran after Green making contact with the Padres skipper. Benches and bullpens cleared.

Roberts was visibly angry in the Dodgers’ dugout following the incident mouthing towards the Padres dugout.

Both Andy Green and Dave Roberts were ejected.
