Apparently, Brett Myers doesn’t fight only women.

According to a story by Yahoo! Sports, Myers and fellow Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels had a locker room altercation following Game Five of the World Series. Myers was walking by Hamels as he was dressing. He asked Hamels, “What are you doing here? I thought you quit.”

Hamels had to be restrained from going after Myers by several teammates. Myers was led out of the Phillies locker by a team official.

The scuffle ruined the good mood in the Phillies clubhouse and came fresh off an 8-6  victory over the New York Yankees to force a World Series Game Six. Myers’ comments were in reference to an interview Hamels gave recently. Hamels said he “couldn’t wait” for this season to end. Hamels, a postseason star on the Phillies World Championship team last year, suffered through a mediocre 2009 regular season. He also has a 7.58 ERA in this year’s postseason.

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel was mystified by the altercation, saying it “surprised” him. Hamels said repeatedly in the same interview that he wanted to pitch Game Seven if the World Series goes that far.
