Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo argued on a strike call early on Wednesday night's game, and during his at-bat, in the seventh inning, he went to home plate umpire Angel Hernandez and apologized.

Hernandez understood that it was just in the heat of the moment.

“Your fault for what brother?” Hernandez replied. “Come on, you’re good, bro. You’re awesome with us. No, no worries. You’re competing. I understand. Don’t worry. You know what’s best of it? You come back and tell me that. That’s how good of a guy you are.”

The Cubs will take on the Dodgers on Thursday night at 7:08 CT with the series tied at 2-2.
