Worst call EVER
The Pittsburgh Pirates have been so bad for so long, that I'm starting to think their run toward the playoffs this season is being guided by a higher power. That is, until I saw how last nights game ended.
Locked in a 3-3 tie with the Atlanta Braves going into the bottom of the 19th inning (no, that is not a typo), the Braves plated Julio Lugo to score the winning run, and send Twitter into a blaze of activity. Lugo appeared to be out by a good three feet, but plate umpire Jerry Meals called Lugo safe.
The loss dropped the Pirates out of first place in the NL Central for the time being, and caused an uproar around those who are glued to the Pirates' post-season hopes.
