#Cubs Maddon ejected 4th time

The Cubs not only lost a challenge Sunday but manager Joe Maddon, who was ejected in the third inning. Maddon was tossed after he questioned crew chief Hunter Wendelstedt following the review of a call.

With two outs in the Brewers third, Milwaukee had a runner at second when Adam Lind hit a ball to shortstop Starlin Castro. Castro made a diving stop, spun, and threw to first from his knees, and Lind was called safe. Maddon challenged the call, but after a review, it was confirmed.

Maddon came out of the dugout with his arms raised in a questioning gesture, and Wendelstedt then signaled that was it for the manager.

Maddon’s three other ejections have come when he’s argued balls and strikes.

Was good to see some production from Castro for a change. Also was good to see that Motte was not asked to bring his gas can to the mound tonight. We have an excellent opportunity to take tomorrow`s contest also, as Locke has not proved all that formidable against our bats in the past. Put another way, he`s not Gerrit Cole. If we can get six or seven solid innings from Heran, the Cubs have a legitimate shot at making it `seven` straight.

It`s my understanding Cole is going to take the mound Friday vs. the Dodgers and Kershaw. I would pay to see that matchup. When I suggested we`ll be pleased with six good innings from Dan Heren, that`s who is is these days. He`s at the end of his career, and is not the fireballer who could go deep into games in his prime. But he still knows how to pitch, and we believe he has something left in the tank, and we`re happy to accept what he gives us.
