With the Sox pounding the Cubs again on Sunday, tensions were high among fans.

Such a heated intracity rivalry has led to fan violence during past Crosstown Classic matchups on the North and South Sides.

On Sunday, tempers boiled over again in the left-field bleachers at Guaranteed Rate Field, and multiple cellphone cameras caught the incident.

It’s difficult to determine what caused the fight. In the minutelong video, we see finger-pointing by a Cubs fan and another fan climbing up three rows to confront someone before getting pushed to the ground by a third fan, which became the spark to spur the fighting.

From there, it becomes a melee of pushing, shoving and punching before Sox security rushed in to break things up.

Here are some other angles of the chaos:

As Sunday was the last game of this interleague matchup for the 2021 season, we’ll have to wait till next year to see the next round of Cubs-Sox. The Sox won five of six games against the Cubs this season, including a 13-1 victory Sunday.
