Mad­don: More night games

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

Chicago Cubs man­ager Joe Mad­don would like to see more night games at Wrigley and day base­ball mostly lim­ited to Satur­days and Sun­days. “This con­stantly hav­ing to rush to the ball­park and not hav­ing the nor­mal method dur­ing the course of the day, it does mat­ter be­cause then you go on the road, it’s en­tirely dif­fer­ent,” he said.

The Cubs didn’t add lights to Wrigley un­til 1988. They are al­lowed to play 43 night games and would like to get that num­ber up to 54.

Mad­don dis­missed the idea that the Cubs have an ad­van­tage over a vis­it­ing team that mostly plays at night. “I think 107 years in­di­cates it wasn’t such a good idea,” he said. Etc.

Cleve­land In­di­ans left-han­der Boone Lo­gan prob­a­bly will miss the rest of the sea­son with a torn back mus­cle . ... Two-time Cy Young Award win­ner Max Scherzer and Gio Gon­za­lez will miss their sched­uled starts for the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als against the Cubs this week­end.
