The Cubs had a lackluster performance in the team's 10-6 loss against the Padres on Sunday afternoon.

Even the last strike was rather bleak as home plate umpire Angel Hernandez rung up Anthony Rizzo for a strikeout on an obvious ball 94 MPH fastball that was outside of the strike zone.

Rizzo followed Hernandez and argued for a few moments and Joe Maddon also gave him a few words during the exchange.

Maddon told reporters after the game that the final strike call was "an egregiously bad call."


It was a ball but I guess the umpire was ready to go home:
