Quick pitch leads benches to clear; Pirates rout Phils 18-4

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) A quick pitch by Kevin Slowey sparked benches to empty in a rare testy spring training game.

Both teams rushed onto the field before the bottom of the fifth inning of the Pittsburgh's 18-4 rout of Philadelphia on Monday when Phillies first base coach Juan Samuel and Pirates third base coach Rick Sofield began yelling at each other. Samuel and Sofield were ejected.

In a year when baseball is implementing new rules to speed the pace of games, the disagreement stemmed from when Slowey threw a quick pitch to Sean Rodriguez in the fourth inning. As players ran onto the field during the altercation, Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli wrestled Rodriguez away from the scrum.
