With two out and two on, Aguilas baserunner R2 Inciarte successfully stole third base on a pickoff attempt from the catcher to the second baseman and attempted to steal home after the Leones appeared to have trouble with the ball. After third baseman Mayora threw to pitcher Garate for the caught stealing and third out to the end the half inning, Inciarte and Garate became entangled, resulting in a bench clearing brawl incident, in which the three overtly involved players were ejected from the contest. At the time of the ejections, the Aguilas were leading, 2-1. The Leones ultimately won the contest, 6-3.

MiLB umpire Clint Fagan was the first base umpire for this contest.

Wrap: Aguilas del Zulia vs. Leones del Caracas, 11/7/12
