Batalla campal en la MLB: Yanquis y Medias Rojas, cambiaron los bates para jugar con los puños

El Fenway Park, una vez más, fue testigo de la intensidad de la mayor rivalidad del béisbol de Grandes Ligas.

Todo empezó en la parte alta de la tercera entrada. Una barrida en segunda base de Tyler Austin, pelotero de los Yanquis de Nueva York, para evitar una doble matanza. Con su pie izquierdo le pegó al campocorto de los Medias Rojas Brock Holt, quien se molestó por la acción. La discusión inmediatamente se acaloró y las bancas de ambos equipos se vaciaron para evitar que las cosas pasaran a mayores. Los umpires realizaron una advertencia, pero la chispa había quedado encendida.
En la parte alta de la séptima entrada, con el partido 10-6 a favor de los Yanquis, el lanzador de Boston Joe Kelly hizo que esa chispa estallara. Con Austin bateando, le lanzó una recta al cuerpo y falló. No logró conectarlo. En el segundo intento lo conectó: un bolazo a la altura de las costillas. El bateador de la novena de Nueva York reaccionó golpeando el bate contra la tierra. No había vuelta atrás, lo…

Protesters confront police after shooting in Charlotte

A black police officer shot an armed black man at a Charlotte, North Carolina, apartment complex Tuesday, authorities said, prompting angry street protests late into the night.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department tweeted that demonstrators were destroying marked police vehicles and that approximately 12 officers had been injured, including one who was hit in the face with a rock. Television coverage showed police firing tear gas to break up the crowd. The protests came just hours after another demonstration in Tulsa, Oklahoma, over the shooting there of an unarmed black man by police.
Charlotte police went to the complex about 4 p.m. looking for a suspect with an outstanding warrant when they saw the man — not the suspect they were looking for — inside a car, department spokesman Keith Trietley said in a statement.
Officers saw the man get out of the car with a gun and then get back in, Trietley said. When officers approached, the man exited the car with the gun again. At that point, officers deemed the man a threat and at least one fired a weapon, he said.
The man, identified as 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott, was taken to Carolinas Medical Center and pronounced dead.
Officer Brentley Vinson, who shot Scott, has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure in such cases. Vinson has been with the department for two years.
Detectives recovered a firearm at the scene and were interviewing witnesses, Trietley said.
Police blocked access to the area, which is about a mile from the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, as protesters gathered after the shooting.
Video from WCCB-TV in Charlotte showed police in riot gear stretched across a two-lane road confronting protesters at the apartment complex later in the night. Some of the officers flanked the main line on one side of the road.
Some protesters were heard yelling "Black lives matter," and "Hands up, don't shoot!" One person held up a sign saying "Stop Killing Us."
Other footage showed protesters lingering around a police vehicle after shattering its windows.
Earlier, a tow truck was brought in to take another police cruiser away. Local media outlets reported that car suffered damage to its rear end.
One television news crew retreated from the scene after demonstrators began rocking their remote van, which was parked near the apartment complex where the shooting occurred.
Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts appealed for calm and tweeted that "the community deserves answers."
In Tulsa, hundreds of people rallied outside police headquarters calling for the firing of police officer Betty Shelby, who shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Friday during a confrontation in the middle of a road that was captured on police dashcam and helicopter video.
Shelby's attorney has said Crutcher was not following the officers' commands and that Shelby was concerned because he kept reaching for his pocket as if he was carrying a weapon. An attorney representing Crutcher's family says Crutcher committed no crime and gave officers no reason to shoot him.
Local and federal investigations into that shooting are ongoing
