Through two games of the National League Division Series, one thing is certain — there’s little love lost between the Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals. The series is now tied at 1-1, as it shifts to St. Louis for Games 3 and 4.

Thus far, the postseason has been filled with tightly-contested games and teams scrapping for any edge and win. For the Cardinals and Dodgers, it’s also included pushing and shoving. After Yasiel Puig was hit by a pitch in Game 1, emotions got the best of a usually calm Adrian Gonzalez.

Gonzalez and Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina got in each other’s and both benches cleared. Zack Greinke hit Jon Jay in the first inning of Game 2, though it was far from intentional. Lance Lynn later brushed Yasiel Puig back with a high fastball and it led to Puig and Molina appearing to exchange words.

Puig struck out on the next pitch and needed to be escorted away from home plate by the umpire as he appeared to be saying something in Molina’s direction. No further incidents occurred, but this likely wasn’t the last of something, however minor it may be, taking place.
