Maui's Victorino involved in basebrawl

SAN FRANCISCO (HawaiiNewsNow) - Benches cleared in the top of the sixth inning during Friday night's game between the Phillies and Giants after San Francisco reliever Ramon Ramirez hit Maui's Shane Victorino in the back with a pitch.

Victorino began walking toward the mound and Giants catcher Eli Whiteside stepped in front of him. Placido Polanco raced in from second base and was tackled by Whiteside, who along with Victorino was ejected. Ramirez also was tossed.

Even Phillies manager Charlie Manuel tried to hold back Victorino to no avail as he entered the fray for a second time.
