Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez and Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Travis Snider were ejected from Sunday's game after a brawl broke out in the third inning.

Brewers bench coach Jerry Narron also was ejected in the melee.

Both teams' benches cleared when Gomez and Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole got in a shouting match with each other following' Gomez triple with two outs in the third. Cole, upset that Gomez flipped his bat after hitting the ball, went over to third base to confront Gomez after he slid in safely.

Gomez stepped toward Cole before the benches cleared, including the bullpens of each team. Gomez and Snider shoved each other and Gomez fell to the ground.

Pirates catcher Russell Martin was restrained by teammate Gaby Sanchez as he headed off the field.
