The Chicago Cubs won their game against the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday 9 runs to 5, but not without making three errors. The Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon has an explanation for why his team made so many mistakes: It’s AC/DC’s fault. The iconic rock ‘n’ roll group performed at Wrigley Field on September 15, and according to Maddon, “they totally messed up the infield.”

“Since the AC/DC concert, we’ve had a little bit of trouble,” Maddon told the Chicago Tribune. “I don’t know if they were out there taking ground balls before the game, or if they had 9-inch heels or spikes.”

“I’ve seen a bad hop at third, and a bad hop at second. I didn’t see one bad hop all year,” he continued. “We just got to get it ironed out because I think Starlin has done a nice job at second base. I don’t want anyone blaming him on that error. It was a weird hop.” (h/t Deadspin)
