On Friday night, the Louisville Cardinals took on the Vanderbilt Commodores in the College World Series.

In one of the best games of the tournament, the Cardinals and Commodores put on a show.

However, the play on the field was the last thing anyone was talking about after the game was over.

Louisville starting pitcher Luke Smith was dealing on Friday night, scattering three hits over eight innings before he made a fatal mistake. Smith struck out Vanderbilt's Julian Infante and the pair had a heated exchange.

The Cardinals star pitcher cussed out the Vandy batter - letting a few f-bombs fly in the process.

Check it out.

The Commodores rallied in the top of the ninth inning, chasing Smith from the game en route to a 3-2 win and a date with Michigan in the College World Series finals.

After the loss, Smith addressed the incident on the field, via ESPN:

"Vanderbilt is a great team," Smith said, "and I respect -- I love that part of baseball. When they got their big hit in the ninth, they celebrate. That's how it goes. When I strike somebody out, I celebrate, and that's just the way it is."

The fiery pitcher was on the losing end this time.
