Former Twin Rene Tosoni was the man in the batter's box before Team Canada and Team Mexico cleared the benches in World Baseball Classic brawl Saturday.

Mexico was steamed because Canada was trying to pile on runs with a 9-3 lead late in their contest. Canada was trying to score as many runs as possible because total runs is one of the WBC tiebreakers to advance to the next round.

Here's video of the brawl, followed by Tosoni's explanation of what was happening, pitch-by-pitch:
