Notes

Hanshin: Brazell blooped a pitch into shallow left in the 7th with runners on first and third and 2 out. Wakiya tracked it down and the ump called it an out.  Replays later showed that Wakiya trapped the ball.  It was a tough call for the ump to make though, since Wakiya made the catch with his back to the ump, which blocked the view.

  1. Eric Lord

    Brutal call by Tsuchiyama on the trap. I was at Koshien last night. The ball was on the ground for a full second, everyone in the stadium saw it hit the grass, people were halfway through celebrating the RBI when we started realizing that the ump had blown it. He missed an easy out/safe at first an inning later that led to a Kyojin run, too. Absolutely cost us a win. Brutal.

    I agree with you Kyle..torres is definitely help the team. Hope team realizes it and keeps him on active roster.
