Fan Interference Call Riles Baseball Playoffs

Boston took down the defending champion Astros 4-1 Thursday to lock up the series in five games. But what most people wanted to talk about Thursday morning was a controversy in the first inning Wednesday night.

The score stayed that way until the top of the sixth, when Verlander allowed a double to Mitch Moreland to start the inning.

Left fielder Andrew Benintendi caught a long fly for the last out - not almost as dramatic as his game-saving diving grab the previous night.

"On the controversial play, you could see Mookie Betts' glove come over the yellow line and, when he smacked against the wall, that closed his glove and all the gentleman, all their hands were behind the yellow line and all going for that wonderful Altuve home run", said Susan Brown. Astros manager AJ Hinch went out to discuss the situation with West, who had a brief consultation with the rest of the six-man umpire crew before the play was reviewed.

The key to the ruling was where the ball was when the contact occurred.

Mystery Illness Causing Paralysis in Children Baffles Doctors
The suspected case in Douglas County is still under investigation and confirmation of the diagnosis could take up the three weeks. Additional symptoms include facial drooping or weakness, difficulty moving the eyes, difficulty swallowing and slurred speech.

That would have been an INSANE catch from Mookie Betts. Without obstruction, the ball clearly would have gone over the wall.

He said it was clear the ball had not yet crossed the railing. The Dodgers lead that series 3-2 with Game 6 set for Friday in Milwaukee.

"I saw the ball coming at us and I thought, 'I don't have a glove".

"I think you know what I think of Joe West right about now", Caldwell added. Their only run came on a home run by Marwin Gonzalez in the seventh off Matt Barnes. "That's a home run", Upton said, before using a hashtag that included some, um, strong language.

It was kind of a Maier call in reverse Wednesday against the Astros.

Saudis preparing to acknowledge journalist died after interrogation 'went wrong'
Saudi officials have been in and out of the building since Khashoggi's disappearance on 2 October without being stopped. President Donald Trump told reporters Monday that he was aware of the report but did not know if it was correct.

West, the crew chief working the right-field line at Minute Maid Park, signaled fan interference after Betts was unable to make a jumping grab. "But I definitely touched the ball", Caldwell told ESPN. I never touched his glove.

What Caldwell says: "I promise you I didn't do anything wrong", he says, per the Houston Chronicle.

Caldwell was given a warning after the incident but was not ejected. The AL was the land of giants this year - with three 100-win teams for the first time in its history - but the Red Sox stand above them all. The fan right next to him has his hand on the FRONT of the fence - look at it - and is reaching FORWARD so his left hand is forward of the right.

Many fans and commentators felt that Betts had indeed reached into the stands and was thus fair game. Rather than fielding the ball on a bounce - which would've been the safe play - Benintendi reached out and made a spectacular diving catch to seal the win. "I feel really, really bad for not being on the field for my team but one thing you can know is that I gave everything I had, healthy, not healthy that was all I have".
