Baez's casual throw costs Cubs in 1-0 loss to Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) Manager Joe Maddon isn't worried about Javier Baez or his Chicago Cubs, even after Baez's casual throw to second base cost his team a pivotal series.

Baez and Ben Zobrist failed to convert on a fielder's choice and allowed a run to score in the eighth inning, and Brock Stewart and four relievers combined to four-hit the Cubs in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 1-0 victory on Sunday.

"We made a mental mistake at second and it costs us," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "(Baez is) a young player but he has as much instinct for this game as anyone I've ever seen. I'm not going to beat up my guys."
