Yasiel Puig‘s return to the majors has given him the chance to add another chapter to his rivalry with Madison Bumgarner.

The two were at it again on Monday as the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder and San Francisco Giants ace were involved in a heated exchange that resulted in the benches clearing.

Bumgarner got Puig to ground out to end the seventh inning and appeared to yell “Don’t look at me” at Puig as he made his way to first base. Puig turned around, responded, and approached Bumgarner. The exchange caused the benches to empty.

“He tried to stare me down or something. I don’t know,” Bumgarner told reporters after the 2-1 walk-off loss. “That’s what it looked like to me.”

The two were involved in a shouting match back in 2014 after Bumgarner yelled at Puig as he rounded the bases following a solo home run off the left-hander.
