MLB Ejections 121-122 - Eric Cooper (3-4; Puig, Hundley)

HP Umpire Eric Cooper ejected Dodgers RF Yasiel Puig and Giants C Nick Hundley (fighting/inciting bench-clearing incident) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Dodgers-Giants game. With two out and none on, Puig slapped at his bat following a foul ball, provoking a verbal response from Hundley, after which Puig and Hundley's verbal confrontation turned physical when Puig shoved Hundley, resulting in a bench-clearing incident after which both players were ejected for fighting, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Giants were leading, 1-0. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 2-1.
