I didnt see the game.

Was Rios defending Garland or something?

Hawkins actually got into it with one of his teammates. Jacque Jones was trying to hold him back, and Hawkins threw him down. Rios may have been trying to fight Hawkins, but I'm not positive about that.

I was at the game, and for the last 3 innings all we were doing was trying to figure out what happened to Rios. According to the guy behind me, farmer and Rooney never confirmed that he was tossed.

Well I saw all the guys standing out there. It wasn't a brawl or anything but Jon was clearly thrown out and they said the Twins players were fighting eachother trying to hold them back. Maybe Rios tried to start something or said something, but Rowand came in right away for him so Jerry must have thought he was done. Fetters did a good job of keeping the peace. Tomorrow will be interesting.
