WATCH: Bote reacts to Braves taking issue with his slide


by - Senior Editor -

Monday night was a game to forget for the Chicago Cubs as they suffered a shutout 8-0 loss to the Braves while having a historic six error game on defense.

In the eighth inning, David Bote slid into second base without making any contact with Braves' Dansby Swanson.

Swanson was upset about the play and Josh Donaldson had a few words with Bote. Both benches cleared and eventually, everything settled back to normal.

Bote spoke with the media following the game and was asked about the slide.

"I just go hard every time," Bote said. "It was a clean slide, nothing dirty. No matter what the score, you play hard until the last out. I just play hard until the last out. Everything was clean."
