Players emerged from their respective dugouts after Giants pitcher Kyle Harrison threw back-to-back fastballs high and inside.

“He didn’t mean it,” Harper said after the game. “I didn’t want to get hit in the face again. That’s about it. … You get hit in the face, man, it’s not fun. That’s about it.”
