NEW YORK (AP) Mets third baseman Todd Frazier and Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton were back at it with more barbs Tuesday.

During New York's 5-3 win on Monday the two jawed at each other from a distance, prompting several Nationals to take a few steps out of the dugout before Frazier and Eaton were guided in opposite directions.

The two were teammates with the Chicago White Sox in 2016 but have an acrimonious history. Eaton said after Monday's game: "I tried to stay patient with the childishness."

"That's Adam," Frazier said. "That's him. At the end of the day, you think about what a man really is. You settle stuff out on the field. You don't talk about it. That's basically what I do. Back in the day, that's how you usually settle it."

"For him to even talk after that, I don't know how you talk after that and that's basically all I'll say after that," Frazier went on. "Men usually settle on the field, but he talked about it. He started it coming at me with `I'm a man. I got a mortgage to pay with two kids.' Pay off your mortgage. I don't know what to tell you."

When Eaton was told of Frazier's comments, he laughed and admitted he does not have a mortgage.

"Man, he's like an old girlfriend," Eaton said.

In a game last Aug. 26 in New York, Frazier yelled at Eaton and the two exchanged words. Earlier that month, a few Mets took exception with a hard slide by Eaton into second base that injured infielder Philip Evans.
