3/2 Dust up in the dugout – UPDATED
Carlos Silva apparently wasn’t happy with the first inning on Wednesday and was involved in a skirmish with Aramis Ramirez in the Cubs dugout. The Cubs made three errors in the inning, including one by Ramirez. Silva had walked the leadoff batter and also served up a pair of two-run homers. As the first inning ended, some players had to be separated. It’s not clear who Silva was upset at. He did not return for a second inning and chose to leave the ballpark without commenting to reporters.
“It was obvious he was upset,” Ramirez said. “Nobody wants to make errors. Nobody feels worse than an infielder or outfielder when they make errors, but we talked about it. Everything’s back to normal now.”
“We don’t have to fight,” Alfonso Soriano said. “We just want to play to win.”
