Pirates pitcher Joe Musgrove appeared to slide late into second base on a force play causing Javy Baez to say something to him. Musgrove turned around and replied to Baez, as he did so the two team’s benches made their way on to the field.
Whatever Musgrove said to Baez seemed to satisfy the Cubs infielder and no punches were thrown during the misunderstanding.
Disagreement between Baez and Musgrove, slide looked a little late to me. pic.twitter.com/RiU4nKTmXP

Both teams have been ready to go at it following an Anthony Rizzo slide at the plate earlier in the series, that caused the Pirates to get their panties in a bunch.
