Despite the mid-game ejections of Javier Baez and Joe Maddon, the Chicago Cubs took control of the contest in the sixth inning, only to squander the lead later on.
I’m not sure why I keep seeing people comment on social media, that every time the Cubs lose, it’s Joe Maddon’s fault. The naysayers contend that the Cubs are full of talent, with the exception of the manager’s spot, so any loss must be a “Joe” issue.
Incited by impressive hitting performances from Javier Baez and Ben Zobrist, the Chicago Cubs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals quite handily.
Friday was anything but a typical day for Jon Lester, the bullpen and the Cubs in general.
