Before the game, Maddon announced that the Cubs dropped their protest over the pitching delivery of Washington reliever Sean Doolittle in Saturday night's game.
"He's not trying to do anything other than rattle me", Doolittle said.
"In that moment, he's not trying to do anything other than rattle me and it was kind of exhausted", Doolittle said. Maddon really just wanted to bring attention to the issue because he is upset his reliever, Carl Edwards Jr., was told in spring training that his similar move was illegal. "I had one more hit there", Bryant said. "But the point was, I would not be a good parent had I not spoken up for my guy". How could I do that? "I've got to say something".
"I saw the ball hit and it didn't even hit the plate, it hit behind the plate", Cano said.
Doolittle, who retired the side in order, thought Maddon had a different motive. "He put his stamp on it for sure".
During the inning in question, however, the umpiring crew allowed Doolittle to continue his delivery.
"We are playing well", Martinez said.
The Chicago Cubs will look to bounce back after dropping game two on Saturday by a final score of 5-2. "In my eyes, Doo' was Doo' and Strasburg was unbelievable".
