Bench clear between Yankees, Rays during Josh Donaldson at-bat

Things got a little messy on Sunday between

the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

In the 2nd inning, Rays pitcher Shaun Armstrong

threw a 3-0 pitch down Josh Donaldson's chin,

prompting a strong reaction from the Yankees third baseman.

Donaldson began jogging on Armstrong and headed towards the mound,

leaving the bench and bullpen empty to worsen the situation.

It took a few minutes but eventually things calmed down without

any ejections or punches. However, both the teams were warned.
