And all anyone knows about it comes from something Phillips tweeted in the wee hours, just after the Reds outlasted the Pirates in 14 innings:
Most likely, if anyone said something abusive to Phillips, it would have happened in the bottom of the eighth inning, when Jared Hughes plunked him with a pitch and Phillips flipped the ball back toward Hughes, which caused Hughes to mouth a few f-bombs back at Phillips, as you can see in the video below. When the next batter came to the plate, Phillips stood on first, staring at Hughes without taking a lead. Hughes made a pickoff attempt anyway. There were points to prove, see.
