The bad blood between the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds continued Thursday afternoon, as the two teams concluded their four-game series with some tense moments.
On Wednesday, Chicago manager David Ross was ejected for the first time this season, coming out to protest with umpire Dan Merzel after Reds reliever Hunter Strickland hit Patrick Wisdom with a pitch in the top of the ninth inning.
In the series finale Thursday afternoon, Ross was ejected for the second time in as many games after Chicago catcher Willson Contreras was hit with a pitch in the seventh inning.
“I’ll keep that between the umpires,” Ross said, according to The Chicago Tribune “A lot of it just goes back to (Wednesday).”

It wasn’t the only moment in the game when tensions were high.
Reds’ first baseman Joey Votto and Cubs’ reliever Rowan Wick shared words once again after Wick struck out Votto in the bottom of the seventh inning.
The two players exchanged words after the strikeout before the umpires got involved.
It was the second time in as many games that Votto and Wick jawed back and forth with each other. On Wednesday, Wick buzzed Votto with a 93 mph fastball in the bottom of the eighth, resulting in Votto yelling at Wick on his way to first base.
After Wednesday’s game, Votto told reporters that the exchange was simply the result of competition.

“He had something to say and I answered,” Votto said after the game. “And that’s how ball is sometimes. You’re competitive, and clearly he [Wick] was competing and locked in on performing well. And I’m pulling on the opposite end of the same rope. And if someone says something to me, sometimes I don’t answer, but I wasn’t in the mood to keep my mouth shut. It’s part of the game. It can be one of the more enjoyable parts of the game.”
