The Chicago Cubs pulled out an extra-innings victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night, but that doesn’t mean manager David Ross was happy with how everything went during the game.

After the 7-6 extra-innings victory, David Ross gave an animated press conference where he expressed his displeasure with the umpires as well as the controversial decision to close the stadium’s roof on a sunny day.

Both Ross and first-base coach Mike Napoli were ejected in the 11th inning for arguing balls and strike calls with home plate umpire Erich Bacchus as All-Star Dansby Swanson was at the plate.

“Guys were starting to get frustrated,” Ross said according to ESPN. “I know it’s not an easy job, but some of the pitches that got called [strikes] weren’t even close.”

In addition to the balls and strikes calls, Ross also explained that he was angry that Bacchus prematurely called out Swanson even though there were only two strikes, and he explained that earlier in the game, he felt that a Brewers baserunner had interfered with a throw that allowed a run to score.

But that wasn’t all Ross was unhappy about. He also blasted the Milwaukee Brewers for closing the roof of the stadium even though there was no inclement weather – something he isn’t even sure is legal.

“They were closing the roof to get rid of the shadows late,” Ross said. “It was really frustrating.”

While he was undoubtedly pleased that his team got the victory, it was not a happy press conference.

“There were so many things today that I thought weren’t good,” Ross said. “I’ve got terrible language today. I apologize.”
