The Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks got into it on Tuesday night over a sequence of tense events between the teams.

In the top of the seventh inning, Steven Souza Jr. was thrown out at second trying to stretch a single into a double. Cubs second baseman Javy Baez tagged him out at the base but was standing in the basepath, so when Souza slid into the bag, he collided with Baez.

Though Souza showed immediate concern over the collision, the Cubs were still bothered by what happened.

When Souza came up to bat in the ninth, Cubs reliever Steve Cishek hit him with a pitch. Souza then complained about it to first baseman Anthony Rizzo, leading to conversations between both sides.

Hitting Souza with the pitch seemed completely unnecessary, especially when you consider that Baez left him nowhere to slide and that Souza immediately felt bad about the contact. Arizona won the game 5-1. Don’t be surprised if they address things in Wednesday’s game.

MLB's most notorious on-field cheaters (Provided by Yardbarker)

Albert Belle: In his prime, Belle was one of baseball's most intimidating players, both physically and as a home run threat. At least in 1994, some of those blasts were ill-gotten. On July 15, 1994, the Indians were playing the White Sox, and Sox skipper Gene Lamont was tipped off that Belle's bat was corked. He challenged the bat, and after a few days — and plenty of shenanigans (more on those in a bit) — Belle's bat was X-rayed, found to be corked (as were all of his bats) and he was suspended for 10 games, though the suspension was later reduced to seven games.

Umpire Angel Hernandez admits his game-ending Strike 3 call on Anthony Rizzo was wrong .
Umpire Angel Hernandez said he didn't hear about Anthony Rizzo's postgame rant over the called third strike that ended Sunday's Cubs game against the Padres. But Hernandez did admit Rizzo was right. The pitch should've been called a ball, and the game should not have ended.
