Rockies shortstop Trevor Story should have been called out on strikes when he swung and missed on a 3-2 Paul Clemens fastball that ended up hitting him in the shoulder. Marlins manager Don Mattingly discussed the issue with home plate umpire Ron Kulpa, but he was informed that the play is not reviewable.

So what does Story do with his new leash on life? He smacked a solo home run, cutting the Marlins’ lead to 2-1. It’s his 18th homer and 46th RBI of the year, bringing his triple-slash line up to .266/.325/.554.

Here’s the video.
