M-Braves in fighting mood before Biscuits series

The Mississippi Braves, before starting a series at the Biscuits, had an ejection-filled ninth inning with Mobile on Saturday.

Native Alabamian Cory Rasmus was ejected after hitting Rossmel Perez with a pitch with two outs. Michael Tarsi hit the next batter, David Nick, with an 0-2 pitch, but he was not ejected.

The benches cleared for unknown reasons after Tarsi walked Ryan Strieby and Perez scored on a wild pitch. Perez took out Tarsi at home to spark the fracas. Braves catcher Christian Bethancourt, third baseman Alden Carrithers, Perez and BayBears manager Turner Ward were ejected.

An infield popup ended Mississippi's 7-3 victory and a five-game series sweep.
