During the Athletics-Indians game there was a peculiar call that lost the game for the Athletics. There was a clear homerun that went over the yellow line and even after review the umps ruled it inside the park. That call stopped the game from going to Extra Innings and giving the A's a chance to comeback.
The MLB has acknowledged the call as an "Improper Call." The ball was hit by Adam Rosales and he got a double on the play and he would end up being stranded with the bases loaded in the ninth inning with his Athletics losing by one on a grounder to the pitcher.
After the game, A's manager Bob Melvin said that the umps clearly made the wrong call. He was ejected for telling them that during the game and he was the one he got them to initially review the play.
"I don't have much to say about it," he said. "I'm not going to talk to them about it. If they want talk about it's one thing, but I'm just going to take the lineup card out."
