SHARE Joe Maddon is upset with how the game ended

On the last play of the game, Cubs right fielder Chris Denorfia hit a ball to the left field fence and went for second, he was called out sliding into second. Cubs manager Joe Maddon reviewed the play immediately, but the umpires didn’t overturn the call.

After the game, Maddon wasn’t happy about the outcome of the call.

Denorfia said he shouldn’t have tried to advance to second and owned his mistake.

Maddon challenged 22 calls this season and only had 12 overturned — the last four challenges were upheld.

The Cubs finish their four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday.
