Baez K's...game over.
Plus, Maddon didn't need to bring Chapman in last night. I haven't agreed with a pitching change he has made in these two games.Madden with 2 horrible pitching changes.
He takes out a guy with command and really dominating. He brings in Lester, who starts slow routinely. He gives up 2 with a wild pitch. Luckily, he calms and goes 3 strong. Then he brings in Chapman, running on fumes, against Guyer who has a quick, short swing. Worst possible match up for the Cubs. Now it's tied. Lester should have pitched out the 8th, especially against Guyer. I suppose I could see the Lester change, but bringing in Chapman in that exact situation was ridiculous.
Sometimes, these managers choke worse than any player.
