CHICAGO (AP) Cubs manager Joe Maddon think baseball's video review umpires should be replaced by ''a bunch of nerds.''

Chicago's 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night ended when Chris Denorfia singled off the base of the left-field wall with two outs in the ninth and was thrown out by Scott Van Slyke, who made a perfect strike to second.

Second base umpire Jordan Baker's call was upheld after a video review.

Maddon says: ''To say there was nothing definitive right there, I cannot disagree with more strongly. I have no idea why they would say that. It makes zero sense to me whatsoever.''
