Major League Baseball admits that the replay umps screwed up last night

12 Comments

Earlier today we wrote about how the replay officials covering last night’s Cardinals-Giants game messed up the replay review of a ball hit by Brandon Crawford. The call on the field was a home run but the replay crew overturned it, awarding Crawford a ground rule double. For reasons explained in our post, the call was totally blown and should’ve remained a homer.

A little bit ago Major League Baseball issued a press release acknowledging the mistake:

 

That’s cold comfort for Crawford and Giants fans, but it’s not like there’s a mechanism in place to replay the game or give him the dinger. And, of course, given where the Giants are right now, the mistake has no impact on the playoffs or anything. We’ll shed a tear if Crawford falls one homer short of some epic milestone, but until then it just kinda stinks. Life kinda stinks sometimes. There’s not always a satisfying remedy.

Braves starter Julio Teheran dazzled in his return from the 10-day disabled list on Sunday, tossing six no-hit inning against the Padres. He walked three and struck out 11 batters on 95 pitches. Unfortunately for Teheran and for the Braves, the no-hit bid ended quickly as reliever Shane Carle surrendered a one-out single to Cory Spangenberg in the seventh inning. Nevertheless, the Braves went on to win 4-1 over the Padres.

Teheran, 27, went on the disabled list on June 5 with a right thumb contusion. He apparently suffered the injury while batting during his June 4 start against the Padres. Following Sunday’s effort, Teheran now carries a 3.97 ERA with a 67/36 K/BB ratio in 77 innings this season.

Coincidentally, Teheran has a spotless ERA on Father’s Day across four starts. Here were the results from his previous three starts:

  • June 16, 2013 vs. Giants: 6 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K
  • June 21, 2015 vs. Mets: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K
  • June 19, 2016 at Mets: 9 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K
