WASHINGTON (AP) - In this day and age, maybe it figures that a good ol' fashioned baseball brawl would take place in the Twitterverse instead of on the diamond.
The official Twitter feeds of the Braves and Nationals mixed it up a bit Tuesday night, shortly after players from both teams spilled out of the dugouts and bullpens - but no punches were thrown - when Atlanta's Julio Teheran hit Washington's Bryce Harper with a pitch in the fifth inning.
In Harper's prior at-bat, he homered off Teheran.
After getting hit, Harper barked at Teheran and pointed at him.
The Braves tweeted: ``Clown move bro,'' tweaking Harper's famous retort to a reporter, ``That's a clown question, bro.''
The Nationals replied: ``Which part, giving up the home run, or drilling the 20-year-old on the first pitch his next time up?''
