DENVER — Rockies star Nolan Arenado charged the mound after a fastball from Luis Perdomo sailed behind him, setting off a heated brawl that resulted in five ejections during a testy game in which Colorado beat the San Diego Padres 6-4 on Wednesday.

Pedromo flung his glove at the rushing Arenado and missed. The big-hitting Arenado then threw a couple of huge punches at the backpedaling Perdomo, but didn’t land anything squarely.

Arenado’s reaction in the third woke up the slumbering Colorado bats, with the Rockies scoring five times in the inning to take a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.
