While Clayton Kershaw was trying to find his groove on the mound after Kris Bryant’s home run off of his monsterous curveball, Joe Maddon was trying to plead with the umpires to stop the game while a few of lights were inoperable. Facing the big lefty with the big curveball, he felt his hitters were at a disadvantage and he wasn’t gonna allow his team to play with such a handicap. The Chicago Cubs still won, Kris Bryant hit a bomb off the fearful Kershaw curveball in the 3rd and off a high fastball from reliever Adam Liberatore in the 8th. The relievers were GREAT lead by Travis Wood. Joe Maddon receives kudos letting his team know this is our home field and we NEED to understand the importance of going againt on the game’s best hurlers Clayton Kershaw.
