CHICAGO - For the second day in a row, emotions ran high at Wrigley Field.

After trading bean balls in Friday's game, the Cubs plunked the Cardinals three more times in route to a 5-4 victory.

Cubs' closer Hector Rondon was ejected for pegging Greg Garcia in the top of the 9th with a 5-1 lead. Joe Maddon argued that it wasn't intentional. He was also tossed. The Cardinals nearly came back, but Addison Russell's diving stop preserved the Cubs' fourth win in the last five meetings with their division rivals.

Maddon defended his pitching staff after the game, saying they were not trying to intentionally throw at any batters.
