The St. Louis Cardinals were not happy that Tommy Pham was hit by a pitch late in Tuesday’s game. The Cardinals went on to win the game and prevented the Chicago Cubs from clinching the NL Central for another day but they didn’t forget.
Pham expressed his displeasure with the play and he seems to be just an overall angry guy these days.
But in the first inning of Wednesday’s game, the Cardinals retaliated.
After Kris Bryant hit into a double play, starter Michael Wacha plunked Anthony Rizzo on the first pitch. Rizzo was not too happy about it as you see by his reaction:

Now go clinch the NL Central, celebrate on the field at Busch Stadium and make Pham mad some more.
