LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A bench-clearing incident took place in the bottom of the fifth inning of the Brewers' game in Los Angeles last night.

But no punches were thrown and order was quickly restored.

It started when Russell Martin of the Dodgers hit what appeared to be a homer but was ruled a foul ball after Milwaukee manager Ned Yost argued the call.

Martin ended up getting a walk, then said something to Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder.

Dodgers first base coach Mariano Duncan began jawing back and forth with someone in the Brewers dugout and was held back by the beefy Fielder as the dugouts emptied.
