WATCH: Benches clear after Arrieta hit by pitch

If the Pittsburgh Pirates were going to lose the NL Wild Card Game to the Chicago Cubs, they weren't going down without a fight.

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News/ FOX Sports) - Jake Arrieta allowed four hits in nine dominant innings and the Cubs rolled to a 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the NL wild-card game on Wednesday night.

But things got a little heated in the seventh inning when Pittsburgh's reliever Tony Watson drilled Arrieta with a pitch at the plate. 

Both benches cleared, but luckily, things quickly got under control and both teams got back down to business.

And although the teams got back to work, Pittsburgh's Sean Rodriguez just took it a little too far. After being ejected, Rodriguez returned to the dugout, where he could be seen shouting "I'm gonna f***ing kill you!" across the diamond, and then unleashed his fury on the Gatorade cooler.
