Red Sox benefit from controversial fan interference

Boston's star outfielder Mookie Betts nearly robbed Altuve of the homer, but fan interference sent the ball back onto the field.

However Rule 6.01 (e) declares that "no interference shall be allowed when a field reaches over a fence railing, rope or into a stand to catch a ball". He jumped at the wall, and his momentum took his glove over it, where it closed after colliding with a fan. "I'm going to need security to escort me out of here if the Astros don't come back to win this", he said.

While Betts didn't say anything to the fans after the disputed play in the first, Caldwell said he immediately started getting texts that he had cost Altuve and the Astros a home run.

The applicable Major League Baseball rule, labeled 3.16 in the official manual, states, "When there is spectator interference with any thrown or batted ball, the ball shall be dead at the moment of interference and the umpire shall impose such penalties as in his opinion will nullify the act of interference". "Jose paid the ultimate price for something out of his control". He does so at his own risk.

"Just because I have an opinion on the call doesn't give you the right to be degrading & disrespectful because I'm a woman", Upton tweeted.

Much like with the NRL bunker, MLB's video replay system requires there be enough compelling evidence to overturn an on-field call.

Canada becomes second country to legalize marijuana nationwide
They are reportedly not prepared to handle these cases yet, which require a blood test within two hours of being pulled over. Mr Trudeau's office have said the prime minister "does not plan on purchasing or consuming cannabis once it is legalised".

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. "I'm not sure if Mookie makes that catch, a great athlete, but how it's an assumed out is unbelievable".

Handed an 8-5 lead, Boston closer Craig Kimbrel ceded a run in the eighth and went to the mound to get the last three outs following an incredible diving catch by Reddick with the bases loaded that ended the top of the ninth. Though the permutations of the game would have obviously gone far differently had the ruling on Altuve's swing been different, the fact that the margin of the Astros' loss matched the number of runs they thought were robbed from them made it sting nevertheless. No, I'm not going to go there.

After Xander Bogaerts' RBI single tied the game, Correa pushed the Astros ahead with another RBI single, part of a standout 3-for-4 game. But that's not the difference. "That's not how the game plays".

In the seventh, Carlos Correa had his left foot two inches short of second base in attempt to turn a double play, but the umpire spotted it, called the runner safe and the Sox used it to tack on their eventual game-winning run.

"It doesn't matter what I think". Hinch challenged it. And after a lengthy review, the umpiring crew in NY couldn't find sufficient evidence to overturn it.
