Chicago, Illinois – Facing a full account with two outs and the Chicago Cubs dragging the Los Angeles Angels for a run in the bottom of the ninth, the left fielder of the Cubs Kyle Schwarber He tried to check his swing in what would have been the four ball to load the bases. However, the third base referee did not let Schwarber slip on what was a very close call and ruled that he turned around for the third strike and the final out of the ball game.
Schwarber seemed to have turned the bat directly in front of him, which is enough to be considered a swing, but it was certainly a call that could have been in any way. In any case, Schwarber badumed that he had held and began to remove his batting equipment before jogging to first base. Much to the chagrin of Schwarber, the third base referee took the matter into his own hands and called Schwarber to hand the Angels a 6-5 victory.
From there, the situation worsened, and Schwarber, usually of modest manners, shouted obscenities to the referee, who, although the game was over, expelled Schwarber from the contest. Several Cubs had to stop Schwarber and calm him down while trying to face the referee for what he perceived as a bad decision. It is likely that Schwarber was also upset about the completion of the ninth inning of the Cubs, which came to an end in something as deflated as a questionable proven swing, which resulted in an unsatisfactory end to an exciting game.
