Yankees and Rays benches cleared after Josh Donaldson nearly hits

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The benches cleared at Tropicana Field after Josh Donaldson nearly got hit by a pitch from Tampa Bay right-hander Shawn Armstrong to lead the start of the second inning on Saturday.

The situation quickly calmed down, but came two days after Donaldson had moped with Friday’s starter for the Rays, Jeffrey Springs, several times throughout the game.

There’s a long history of ill will between the two teams, with both feeling the other has targeted them in the past.
