Kemp, Chirinos ejected after home-plate scuffle

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp and Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos were both ejected from Wednesday night’s game at Dodgers Stadium after a collision at the plate caused both benches to clear.

Kemp was attempting to score from second base on Enrique Hernandez‘s two-out single to right field in the bottom of the third inning. But with the throw reaching the plate well before him and Chirinos blocking his path, Kemp lowered his shoulder and barreled into Chirinos.

After Kemp was tagged out to end the inning, Chirinos got up and shoved him, and Kemp shoved him back as both benches cleared.

Kemp and Chirinos were both ejected. Joc Pederson replaced Kemp in left field, and Carlos Perez replaced Chirinos.
