Bryce Harper throws punches, helmet in epic brawl against San Francisco Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland

As baseball fights go, this was one of the better ones with good punches connecting.  But, what's up with San Francisco catcher Buster Posey who was supposed to grab Harper before he got near his teammate? 
NY Post reports Bryce Harper’s matchup with Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland turned into a boxing match Monday after Strickland drilled the fiery slugger.

An enraged Harper charged the mound, fired his helmet and traded punches to the head with San Francisco reliever after getting hit by a fastball, setting off a wild brawl Monday during the Nationals’ 3-0 win over the Giants.

Drilled in the right hip by a 98 mph heater on Strickland’s first pitch in the eighth inning with two outs, none on and Washington ahead 2-0, Harper didn’t hesitate. The slugger pointed his bat at Strickland, yelled at him and took off.
