RENO, Nev. (AP) -- A major brawl in a Triple-A game instigated by rehabbing Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena against the Arizona Diamondbacks' top minor league affiliate has resulted in the suspension of 11 players.

The benches cleared twice during Arruebarrena's at-bat for Albuquerque in the second inning Saturday night. The second time, Arruebarrena took exception with Reno Aces catcher Blake Lalli brushing past the Cuban player after he struck out. Arruebarrena shoved Lalli, and then threw his helmet at him, setting off a melee that lasted 21 minutes and resulted in 10 ejections, including Reno manager Phil Nevin, the former major league All-Star.

Arruebarrena was not among the five Isotopes suspended because he was on a rehabilitation assignment. Any discipline would come from the commissioner's office. But Arruebarrena has since been sent to Class-A Rancho Cucamonga by the Dodgers.

Pitcher Kameron Lowe, first baseman Mike Jacobs and outfielder Aaron Cunningham, all former major leaguers, were among six Aces suspended.
