Angels, Rangers scuffle during batting practice

July 28, 2004


— Anaheim second baseman Adam Kennedy and Texas catcher Gerald Laird got into a scuffle during batting practice Tuesday, a carry-over from a dispute the night before.

Laird thought Kennedy intentionally tried to get hit by one of Ryan Drese's pitches with the bases loaded and two outs in the second inning of Texas' 6-1 victory Monday night, and said something to Kennedy when he came up again in the fifth.

"Obviously, it wasn't quite resolved," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.
