Dallas Latos — the wife of Reds pitcher Mat Latos — claims to have had an ugly incident during Tuesday’s National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park, a 6-2 victory for host Pittsburgh. We’ll let her do the explaining:

At this point people on Twitter — mostly Pirates fans — are calling her a liar …

More to come, certainly. Maybe even some YouTube embeds from ball-less nerds.

ESPN’s Jesse Rogers reports that the Cubs have placed closer Brandon Morrow on the 10-day disabled with inflammation in his right biceps. Manager Joe Maddon said he doesn’t anticipate Morrow being on the DL for much more than the minimum 10 days. He said, “Velocity was down last outing. I asked him about it after the game and could tell he was holding something back. Said it was just that time of year.”

Morrow, 33, has had an excellent season for the Cubs, saving 22 games with a 1.47 ERA and a 31/9 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings. The right-hander is under contract next year at $9 million and has a 2020 vesting option worth $12 million with a $3 million buyout.

Steve Cishek and Pedro Strop will likely handle save situations while Morrow is out.
