Some timely intervention was a good thing. As some Sun minions observed, that's not always the case. In 2002, 14 Orioles and Red Sox were disciplined in a bench-clearing melee sparked by pitches thrown by Boston's Derek Lowe and Baltimore's Scott Erickson. In 1993, there was a 20-minute fracas between the Orioles and Mariners at Camden Yards. And in 1998, a nasty Orioles-Yankees fight broke out when Baltimore pitcher Armando Benitez drilled New York's Tino Martinez after Benitez had given up a gopher ball to Bernie Williams. For that one, the O's apologized.
