The Cubs-Rockies game was wild and crazy affair with several incidents including Kris Bryant getting hit in the face with a 96 MPH, crazy catches by Albert Almora Jr., and a heated exchange between Javy Baez and D.J. LeMahieu over the possibility of stolen signs.

Baez spoke with the media following the team's 9-7 win and was brutally honest about what he saw with the Rockies.

"He told me (LeMahieu) they changed the signs," Baez told reporters. "Why you telling me. You telling me to my face that you getting the sign. Come on man. I don't know man. I'm really mad about it. I'm really smart. We won the game. End of series."

Maddon had the following to say to reporters about the incident after the game.

“That was old school there," he said. "They’re trying to give location and Javy is blocking. I’ve never seen that before. That is some grassroots stuff. You may see that more often."

Here is the video of the play:
