Description

In the fourth game of a critical five-game series between the Cubs and Cardinals at Wrigley Field in 2003, tensions rose in the bottom of the third inning. Cardinals starter Dan Haren, who was plunked by Cubs starter Matt Clement in the second, retaliated by hitting Clement in the leg with a pitch in the third. It led to a heated exchange between Cubs manager Dusty Baker and Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, who were shouting at each other from dugout to dugout. The Cubs, who trailed 2-0 at the time, fell behind 6-0 in the sixth before rallying to win 8-7. I'll upload the entire game later, but the Baker-La Russa spat was too good not to post as soon as possible. Here's the link to the box score from Baseball Reference: http://bit.ly/2b543bD
