Possible blown call looms large in Dodgers win over Angels


| | | |

With one out in the eighth inning of the – game in Dodger Stadium on Monday night, sent a fly ball deep to right field. was on first base and was running with the pitch, so he was around second before having to turn back. On his way back to first base, he was called out after apparently being tagged by Dodgers first baseman .

Only it looks like Gonzalez missed him, and the Angels are livid.

Here’s the play in question, though MLB.com video doesn’t have the side angle available:

The Angels’ broadcafirmed Barcelona’s interest.Farinez is seen as a replacement for departing reserve keeper Jasper Cillessen at Barca.Father Luis Farinez confirmed that there has been contact with Barcelona.”I can confirm that there has been contact with Barcelona andst showed the play in slow motion multiple times, and it seemed pretty evident that Gonzalez missed Aybar. My guess is the only people who disagree didn’t see a good camera angle, really love the Dodgers or really hate the Angels.

“He got back to first base,” manager Mike Scioscia said (). “Unfortunately, we didn’t get the call.”

Home plate umpire Gary Darling, who had to sprint to first base and make the call, saw replays and didn’t change his mind, however.

“Still had no daylight,” Darling said ().

If Darling is being sincere, and I really hope he’s not lying just to save face, this is pretty surprising. As I said, multiple camera angles showed that the tag was missed. Regardless, it’s time to talk about replay again.

I believe most umpires would want replay to help them fix obviouder Giovanni Lo Celso.The Argentine, signed from Real Betis this past summernth.Saints’ players reported for duty at Staplewood last Monday but were then advised to train at home in light of prime minister Boris Johnson’s message to the UK. An update released by Saints said: “In light of the latest Premier League statement, has been out for two months with a hip injury.But manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed on Monday that Lo Celso will be available for Wednesday’s Champions League clash wits mistakes. No one wants to be saddled with an awful call like Don Denkinger has been for nearly three decades. Remember how awful Jim Joyce felt when he cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game?

Then again, would replay have even helped here? Darling insists he got it right. Maybe he was trying to save face and he would have seen it differently if there were expanded replay. But this was a very important part of the game. The Angels ended up losing by one and should have had a runner on base with two outs and , and slated as the next three hitters.

Maybe the Dodgers would have retired Pujols and ended the game in similar fashion to what actually happened. Maybe the Angels would have tied it or taken the lead and the Dodgers would have come back to win, anyway. We’ll never know. And that, to me, is the problem here.

Patrick Corbin’s amazing (and historic) streak


In the best stretch of his career, during his Cy Young/MVP season of 2011, Justin Verlander made nine straight starts in which he pitched at least six innings and gave up no more than two runs.

That’s what has done to start this year.

Corbin’s streak just keeps getting more impressive. When the 23-year-old left-hander beat the Rockies with a complete-game, 10-strikeout performance Monday night, he ran his streak of impressive starts to nine.

Well, allows you to search all the way back to 1916. In 98 years of searching, the only other pitcher to begin a season with nine straight starts of six-plus innings and no more than two runs was Ubaldo Jimenez of the 2010 Rockies.

That’s two guys in nearly 100 years (or probably more, sick Aubameyang.The duo both struck in victory over Valencia for this week’s Europa League semifinal first-leg win.Emery said, “Without the strikers it’s difficult, and it’s the same with the goalkeeper. Without the goalkeeper it’s difficult, and the mnce chances are that no one did it before 1916, either).

(As one sharp-eyed reader pointed out, Bob Tewksbury did the six-plus innings, two-runs-or-fewer thing in each of his first 10 starts with the 1992 Cardinals. But Tewksbury made a relief appearance in a 17-inning game in the middle of his streak.)

Roy Halladay has never had nine straight starts of six-plus, no-more-than-two in his career. Randy Johnson never went more than nine in a row. Clayton Kershaw, as good as he is, has never gone more than five in a row.

Patrick Corbin has nine. He’ll go for 10 on Sunday against the Padres.
