As fights go, it was definitely on the undercard.
On the same hot Florida day Milton Bradley and Jeff Kent skirmished in the clubhouse, pitcher Brad Penny and batting coach Tim Wallach screamed at each other in a corner of the dugout.
Wallach wanted to know why Penny hadn't hit Florida Marlin slugger Carlos Delgado with a pitch in the fifth inning Saturday as retribution for Kent's being plunked by Ismael Valdez in the top of the inning.
Delgado hit a home run and Wallach lit into Penny when he reached the dugout. However, Penny had asked Kent if he should retaliate, and Kent said no.
