Bench-clearing brawl

Outspoken Shelley Duncan just caused a brawl.

From Lisa Kennelly:

All hell has pretty much broken loose here. Shelley Duncan hit a liner off the third baseman's glove and started running to second. The ball beat him there by a good 10 feet but he slid hard into second baseman Akinori Iwamura. Then Rays right fielder Jonny Gomes sprinted in from the outfield and barreled into Duncan. That cleared the benches and turned the infield into a bit of a mob scene.

Finally back to playing now. Duncan and Gomes have both been ejected, as have Yanks third base coach Bobby Meachum and hitting coach Kevin Long.

At least the Yankees got their money's worth this time. Hopefully this finally puts this story to bed.
