Baseball: Fight Sox.

TWO full-scale brawls like scenes from a Wild West saloon marred Chicago White Sox's 14-6 rout of Detroit Tigers.

Reserve players from both benches raced on to the field to join the mass punch-ups, and even fans got into the act by showering one of the back-up players - Detroit's Robert Fick - with beer when he returned to the bullpen. Yet incredibly both managers laughed off the disgraceful scenes.

Chicago's Jerry Manuel said: "For the most part, it's just part of baseball."

And Detroit's Phil Garner said: "A lot of this stuff is just a bunch of chests puffed out."
