Tensions were high in Saturday's Philles-Mets game in New York.
Former Cub and current Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta had a rough outing, allowing five earned runs on 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings. Arrieta also hit three batters, including former White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier. Frazier had a few words for Arrieta after getting hit, as did Arrieta for Frazier after the game, a 6-5 Mets win.

Yikes. Frazier left the ballpark before he was able to reply to Arrieta's comment, though he responded ahead of Sunday's game.
"He can say what he wants."— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) July 7, 2019

Arrieta is also reportedly dealing with a bone spur in his elbow, which might explain his rough outing.
