Sanchez went to the infield care center after the incident. He talked to reporters after exiting the care center.

"I was walking back to the hauler, tap on my back, got punched in the face," Sanchez told reporters. "Cheap shot, but it is what it is, I guess. I'm all for fighting, but no cheap shots. I got a cheap shot. Never really had a chance to get him back."
