It was a wild American League Championship Series game with memorable moments, great batting, fielding and pitching, and a diving catch to end it. They squeezed six innings out of him - more than they would have dared hope for at the start of the night - then used only the best arms at their disposal for the remaining nine outs. "But we want more", Price said of the Red Sox who are 5-0 in road games this postseason. If the fan had knocked Betts' glove while he reached into the stands, then no interference would have occurred, giving Altuve a 2-run homer.
Mookie Betts may have been onto something. But if it was over the wall, the fan had every right to go for it.
"(West) just said that it was fan interference on the field.
He said it was clear the ball had not yet crossed the railing.
It was kind of a Maier call in reverse Wednesday against the Astros.
Boston took down the defending champion Astros 4-1 Thursday to lock up the series in five games. And I did. I got called up, I think, September 17, and had two weeks in the big leagues before the playoffs.
Instead of a homer, Altuve was ruled out, and the fans at Minute Maid Park made their disapproval of the call known with a hefty amount of boos. "I understand it's not easy to make that call". Martinez solo home run in the top of the third.
Needless to say, opinion was divided on the ruling. "That's a home run", Upton said, before using a hashtag that included some, um, strong language.More news: YouTube back up after outage
Alas, it seems like the Baseball Gods were not on the Astros side.
"That was a ball I could catch". I never touched his glove. "I'll take it. I'll take it", Cora said.
"As long as the Astros come back and win this we'll be all right", Caldwell said during the game.
Caldwell was given a warning after the incident but was not ejected.
A fan who identified himself as Troy Caldwell, insisted he wasn't reaching out over the fence when the ball hit his hand. It's also the fourth time they've reached since Bill Buckner's infamous gaffe in the 1986 World Series.
"He just said that there was fan interference on the field and my argument was more about the fact that the ball was leaving the yard, the trajectory was there", Hinch said during an in-game interview on TBS.
