Do Not Pitch V-Mart Inside!

In the sixth inning of Sundays game, Miguel Cabrera crushed a home-run off of Houston Astros pitcher Jose Valdez. Valdez then tossed a fastball at V-Marts knees causing him to head towards the mound. Both benches did clear, words were flying but nothing really popped off. Martinez was held back by home plate umpire Greg Gibson and later by Miguel Cabrera. V-Mart responded by taking Valdez to deep left field for a double. He finished the day 2-3 with 2 RBI.

I have a guilty pleasure of really enjoying disagreements between pitchers and batters-even if it is in a meaningless spring training game!
