Peoria Chiefs pitcher Julio Castillo had some issues commanding the location of his fastball in last night’s Class-A game against the Dayton Dragons. Castillo hit everything but the strikezone - including two batters and a fan - resulting in a 10 minute bench clearing brawl, 17 ejections and one night in jail for the pitcher.

The fan was hospitalized after being hit with a ball thrown by Castillo, which was intended for the Dayton dugout. Benches were beginning to clear following a shoving match between Dayton manager Donnie Scott and interim Peoria manager Carmelo Martinez, who was filling in for regular manager Ryne Sandberg.
