Take me out to the “basebrawl” game: Fight breaks out at Royals vs. White Sox game

Benches cleared at the end of the seventh inning of Thursday’s game between the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox.

Kansas City starter Yordano Ventura snagged a grounder from Chicago outfielder Adam Eaton and the pair appeared to exchange words before Ventura threw to first to end the inning. After the play, players from both dugouts and bullpens ran onto the field. Several punches were thrown.

There were five ejections — Kansas City’s Ventura, Lorenzo Cain and Edinson Volquez along with Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija from Chicago.

During the bottom of the fourth, Ventura hit Jose Abreu in the left arm with a pitch. In the top of the fifth, Sale hit Mike Moustakas, leading to warnings for both benches.

The game was tied 2-2. (AP)

Hi! You said you live in Chicago, so I was wondering how you felt about the public transport system? I don't have a drivers license due to medical reasons and need to live somewhere that I can get around with public transport because (sadly) my mom can't drive me everywhere. Thanks for any input you can give me!

I like our transport system a lot. Yes, there are bugs and things don’t always run on time, but having lived in a city with next to no public transport, Chicago’s is a godsend. We have the metra, the El, the subway, buses, taxis, and water taxis (and I feel like more I’m forgetting). We have a lot of options and they’re almost all linked together. We also have a great transit app that will help you figure out your route and times using multiple forms of transportation, if necessary.
