It was an unusually chilly night at Wrigley Field as temperatures were in the mid-50s with light rain and breezes blowing in from left field at 7 mph — leaving Maddon even more perplexed. “I don’t know what I’m witnessing, but the way the ball is coming off the bat right now is extraterrestrial,” Maddon told reporters (via NBC Sports Chicago). “It’s an E.T. thing going on out there. It’s crazy. This is my fifth year (with the Cubs), and I know what I’ve seen. Whenever the wind is blowing in like that, you don’t see that. You don’t see that.” Related News Cubs manager Joe Maddon is perplexed by the number of home runs he’s seeing this year.

It is what it is,” added Lester, who worked around two home runs for the win. “Every pitcher in the big leagues has to pitch with it. You can comment on it all you want, but it just sounds like an excuse. I don’t make excuses. Gotta make better pitches.”
