* "It was (Heyward's) ground ball to second with men on second and third and none out in the top of the seventh inning that [purportedly] got his manager most excited.

"I love the ground ball to second, RBI," Joe Maddon said after the game. "Second and third, I've been waiting for that play. I always call that the double jeopardy. Move 'em over and get him in. That gets so overlooked in the scheme of things. It was outstanding."

* The Slide/s: Joe Maddon is just wrong. The more he lashes out and more stubborn he is the more wrong he is.

* Lineuptista Diva:


"Joe Maddon continues to rotate his players in and out of his lineups. Tonight Ian Happ is in CF while Albert Almora Jr and Addison Russell get the day off: Ben Zobrist is at 2b with Javy Baez at SS: 'I can't emphasize enough, for those on twitter asking these questions, it's really important to balance all these guys' playing time and if you look at their at-bats right now it's pretty even.'"
