Baseball: Brawl mars Pirates-Brewers game

A verbal exchange between Pittsburgh pitcher Gerrit Cole and Milwaukee outfielder Carlos Gomez sparked a brawl that saw Gomez tossed from their Major League Baseball game on Sunday. The fracas occurred in the third inning, after Gomez had tripled off of Cole with a drive to center field that hit the wall.
