During the seventh, the Cubs were winning 4-0 against the Pirates at the wild-card game. When pitcher Tony Watson threw an inside fastball that hit Jake Arrieta on the thigh, this made the Cubs players invade the field, and lead to some shouting. One player who stole the show was Pirates infielder Sean Rodriguez, after he was already removed from the field, he was later ejected, and took all his frustration or energy on the cooler.

After Arrieta was dominating five innings, Travis Snider dropped the sixth with a hard single to right. Then Gregory Polanco hit a liner to third base, Kris Bryant made a spectacular play, catching the ball in the air just before it hit the ground. With the crowd totally excited, Starling Marte smashed another hard grounder, right to Russell, who initiated the 6-4-3 double play. There were four hard-hit balls in the inning, but no runs.

Part of the incidents between these two teams go back, when Coghlan took out Kang, resulting in Kang absences in this game. It happened when Kang was sliding off the base to break up a double play. Kang had the second-highest OPS on the Pirates.
