WATCH: Benches clear after Bote's slide into second base

The Chicago Cubs are not having a fun night in Atlanta.

If six errors were not enough, the benches cleared in the eighth inning when the Braves were upset about a 'hard slide' by David Bote into second base.

There was no contact on the slide as Bote slide a little right of the bag.

Dansby Swanson was upset about the play and Josh Donaldson had a few words with Bote. Both benches casually came out but left after a few moments.

I don't blame Bote being a little peeved being down eight runs and players arguing with him over his slide.
