WATCH: Benches clear during Cubs-Brewers
|Saturday, April 9, 2022, 5:36 PM- -|
Drama at Wrigley Field.
The Brewers hit Cubs outfielder Ian Happ in the eighth inning in his left knee as he had to leave the 9-0 game on Saturday afternoon.
The Cubs appeared to support Happ as Keegan Thompson hit Andrew McCutchen as payback.
After the hit batter, both teams ran onto the field and had a heated exchange, but nobody was ejected besides Thompson.
The Brewers have hit three Cubs players today, including Willson Contreras, on back-to-back days to start the season.
