The Seattle Mariners could use more fight as they come down the stretch of the 2018 MLB season -- just not with each other.

A brawl reportedly erupted in the Mariners clubhouse hours before Tuesday's loss against the Baltimore Orioles, reportedly involving Jean Segura and Dee Gordon with players like Mike Zunino breaking it up. 

The loss to Baltimore, being the cherry on top of a chaotic day.

Gordon asked reporters to leave the locker room, and moments later the doors to the Mariners clubhouse flung open with some players shoving and others trying to end the madness. 

No info has surfaced yet on what exactly caused the ruckus in the Mainers clubhouse. Those details will likely remain in-house, but the grind of a 162-game season will cause people to get frustrated at times. 

"It happens a lot more than you know," said Seattle manager Scott Servais. "Things happen in a clubhouse. Our guys are working throughout it and talking through it. It's unfortunate, but it happens."

This is just one of many hardships the Mariners have endured in recent months. 

After beginning the season with a 46-25 record and 11.5-game lead on the A's in the Wild Card standings, they have gone 31-37 since. Not to mention, the Robinson Cano 80-game suspension, and his subsequent return, which created a logjam at certain positions. 

Additionally, Seattle has lost six of its last nine games, and now sit 5.5 games behind Oakland in the AL Wild Card standings. That doesn't generate much confidence for this team moving forward.
