Cubs' Maddon Stands by Not Using Davis

Cubs' Maddon Stands by Not Using Davis

The telecast averaged 6.8 million viewers and peaked with an average of 8.9 million from 10:45 p.m. -11 p.m., Eastern Time - about the time that Justin Turner launched a walk-off three-run homer against John Lackey to lift the Dodgers to a 4-1 victory.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon is standing by his decision not to use All-Star closer Wade Davis in Chicago's loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 2 of the NL Championship Series and is questioning the criticism coming his way.

Maddon said he expected to be fined for his actions.

Maddon, however continued to express frustration with the ruling.

"I really enjoy my conversations with (Torre)", Maddon said (via the Chicago Tribune). "He says he feels 'normal-ish.' That's, I think, a good thing to hear".

Maddon was ejected in the seventh inning after arguing an overturned call at home plate.

Barksdale initially called Culberson out on a throw from left fielder Kyle Schwarber on a single by Justin Turner. After a video review, Major League Baseball umpires ruled that Cubs catcher Willson Contreras had violated MLB's obstruction rule by not leaving a clear path for Culberson to the plate.

"I saw a great baseball play", Maddon said after the game. Ideal skip-hop, great play by Contreras.
