It was a crazy scene of events on Saturday night at Citi Field when Todd Frazier and Mickey Callaway were both ejected in the fifth inning following Jake Arrieta hitting Frazier with a pitch.
Frazier hasn't liked being hit by the Phillies this season, which is why he threw down his bat and traded words with Arrieta has he walked to first base. Home plate umpire Tripp Gibson issued a warning to both benches following the play, but Frazier continued to argue it, which caused his ejection.
The feud didn't finish when the game was over, though, as Arrieta said, "If Frazier's not happy about it, he can come see me. I'll put a dent in his skull."
Frazier didn't go that far with his response on Sunday before the final game of the series, as he took the high rode to his answer for Arrieta's comment.
"I'm just sick of getting hit especially by this team," Frazier said. "So, at the end of the day, he can say what he wants. Little overboard but just gotta keep playing. Glad we won the game yesterday and hopefully some things change. Got hit four times now, and enough is enough."
The veteran third baseman also didn't understand why Arrieta wasn't tossed -- it was the reason Callaway came storming out of the dugout and received his ejection -- when he hit Amed Rosario following the warning of the two benches.
"When an umpire makes a decision to warn both benches and he doesn't come through with it, don't warn benches then," he said.

As Frazier noted, the Mets did come away with a big 6-5 win at the end of the night. Adeiny Hechavarria played a great third base in Frazier's absence, collecting a couple great diving grabs on Rhys Hoskins.
