Dodgers’ Joe Kelly throws behind Astros’ Alex Bregman, taunts Carlos Correa

The inevitable has finally happened in the MLB. During last night’s Dodgers and Astros game, Joe Kelly threw a 96 mph fastball behind the head of Alex Bregman in the sixth inning during Tuesday night’s game.

This caused benches to clear after a few pitches later a few more brush-back pitches, Kelly mocked Carlos Correa with a pouty face as he walked off the mound after striking Correa out and shared some pretty words, prompting both benches to clear and offering a brief snapshot of the tension that still lingers between these teams.
