Cubs' Lee, Padres' Young ejected after fight
The two players were ejected, as were Padres pitcher Jake Peavy and Chicago hitting coach Gerald Perry.
Young hit Lee in the back of the upper left arm with the pitch, knocking him to the ground. Lee got up, walked by Young on the way to first, then said something to the 6-foot-10, 260-pound right-hander.
After the pitcher apparently responded, Lee threw a punch that didn't land. Young tried to throw a punch back that missed. Then he and Lee tried to connect at the same time.
By that time both benches had emptied, resulting in pushing, shoving and holding in a scrum as several players fell to the ground before order was restored.
Young did not allow a hit in his three innings-plus Saturday and was replaced by Justin Hampson.
