Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves was a large part of a brawl between Mexico and Canada in the World Baseball Classic in Arizona Saturday.

Aceves got mixed up with a few Canadians in the brawl, but particularly with pitcher Jay Johnson (not pictured), a prospect in the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

See the video above to catch Johnson, No. 57 for Canada, land a few left-handed punches on Aceves. Johnson also hammers Mexico outfielder Eduardo Arredondo.

Canada went on to win the game, 10-3, but it was marred by the fight and debris being thrown from the stands.
