VIDEO: Joe Maddon Rips Red Sox For Brawl

The Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 7-4 on Friday night up in Boston, but the big story was a near bench clearing brawl late in the game. Franklin Morales hit designed hitter Luke Scott, who then made his way to the mound and incited a near brawl.

Rays manager Joe Maddon didn't hold back after the game, putting the blame on the Red Sox coaching staff. From Tampa Bay Times writer Marc Topkin's blog The Heater, check out video of Maddon ripping the Sox after the jump.
