According to published reports, Ross called the game himself. He noticed Lohse had a good backdoor slider during warmups, and started calling for it in the fourth inning. He kept calling it, Lohse kept executing it, and the Cubs could never do anything with it. So, despite going 0-3 with three strikeouts, Ross was reportedly very pleased after the game.
