Baseball's mental and physical battle between pitcher and batter getting out of hand is a tale as old as time, but it never seems to disappoint once the sparks start flying. We've definitely seen our fair share of batters being hit by pitches before charging the mound for some physical revenge.
These altercations rarely reveal which player actually got the upper hand, though, as both combatants are usually mobbed by their teammates before anything too significant happens. But that wasn't the case in this fight between then-Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado and Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura.
After charging the mound, Machado lands what looks to be a pretty devastating right hook on Ventura. It's safe to say he came out on top there.
While there are never really any winners in these brawls, besides, perhaps, the MLB after collecting player fines, it's safe to say Machado got what he wanted of Ventura here.
