Joe Maddon has funny reaction to what sparked Cubs-Reds tussle

Joe Maddon

Things got a bit heated between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, and Cubs manager Joe Maddon thinks he knows why.

Reds left-hander Amir Garrett celebrated after striking out Chicago second baseman Javier Baez to end the sixth inning, and Baez did not seem to appreciate that. The two exchanged words, and the benches cleared, though no punches were thrown.

So what was the issue with Garrett’s celebration? According to Maddon, the “roar” was a tiny bit over the top.

Ironically, Baez has been on the other side of a controversy like this. It sounds like much ado about something fairly insignificant.
