Benches cleared during a Mets-Yankees Triple-A game for the second straight day. And it centered on the same players.
In the ninth inning, Syracuse Mets reliever Arquimedes Caminero threw up and in to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre first baseman Mike Ford, resulting in Caminero's ejection for the second straight game.

Ford, who played in 10 MLB games with the Yankees earlier this season, hit a go-ahead homer off Caminero in the seventh inning of Sunday's game.
Caminero followed by hitting the RailRiders' Breyvic Valera in the back, resulting in his ejection and a benches-clearing brawl.
Caminero was the only player ejected on Monday as Syracuse won 9-5.
On Sunday, Syracuse shortstop Danny Espinosa and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre outfielder Logan Morrison were also ejected for their roles in the brawl.
The two teams play again in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for a four-game series beginning on June 7.
