Phils' Arrieta gets standing ovation from Cub fans

Phillies pitcher Jake Arrieta felt the love from Cubs fans Monday night when he returned to Wrigley Field for the first time since signing with Philadelphia ahead of the 2018 season.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

After not getting a checked swing strike 3 call, which would have ended the game in the Cubs favor, Joe Maddon reiterated a stance he's had for a while. He'd rather see technology address that play than balls and strikes: "Everyone is in favor of an electronic strike zone. I'm in favor of trying to figure out checked swings. It's so subjective...That's the one that really bothers me. That's the one that gets me kicked out more than any particular item. If there is anyway to figure that out I think that would be the best thing to do..more than the strike zone, which I'm not interested in." In the past, Maddon has suggested using lasers to help make that call.
