Marlins 16, Nationals 10

MIAMI — Nyjer Morgan charged the mound after a Marlins pitch sailed behind him, triggering a bench-clearing brawl Wednesday night during Florida's 16-10 win over the Nationals.

Morgan, recently suspended and criticized by his own manager for questionable acts on the field, on Tuesday left Florida catcher Brett Hayes with a separated shoulder after a home plate collision in the 10th inning.

On Wednesday, Chris Volstad hit Morgan with a pitch in the fourth. The leadoff man stole two bases with his Nationals trailing 14-3.

Volstad threw his first pitch of the sixth behind Morgan, setting off a wild scene. Morgan took a big swing that appeared to graze Volstad's face. Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez clothes-lined Morgan, knocking off his helmet and flattening him.

The teams piled up, and managers Jim Riggleman of the Nationals and Edwin Rodriguez of the Marlins jawed at each other.
