Maddon decided to hit for Hendricks with runners on first and second and no out in the fifth

Chicago’s best scoring opportunities against Nova came following fielding errors on routine plays by Harrison and Mercer, but the right-hander worked out of jams in the third and fifth.

Lewis doesn’t flinch at mention of those two names. He believes such deaths are rooted in losing a game you love, because he knows that depression. Football is a way to unleash demons from your past, he explains. An outlet. Once it’s gone, you must face those demons again.
