Meh, I'd say he didn't tag him based on the shot from behind the catcher.

Tag missed. The catcher got sloppy and didn't connect. His fault they lost.

i think the ump was just bored; and besides, it's not like game 74 of 256 is really that important anyway.

You gotta tag harder than that buddy. I think it was an incorrect call... but not a bad one. When the play is that important you gotta make the tag strong.

@irwinmcmath its clear. Look at 1:08 and you see him tag him. He steps on the plate at 1:09.

What? I don't understand anything at all. What did he do wrong? What who, I don't...

If you look at the play over and over, you will see that the tag is disputable...he doesn't get his arm. It looks like he doesn't even get his leg...I agree with the comment that says the catcher should have made a cleaner more obvious tag.

Yeah, the ump was just tired and ready to go home. He didn't care if it was the right call. He didn't want to stick around any longer. I hope the ump gets into some kind of trouble over this. There's no excuse for it, it wasn't even close.

I'm a Braves fan, and I love seeing them win, but that was an out.

@xCYBERDYNEx:

they have instant replay in baseball, and it doesn't fix anything; again, Pujols homer last night (link), reviewed and clearly a double, ruled a home-run

yes, it changed the outcome of the game, game ended 3-1 with this 2 run shot being the difference

as far as the out, how is it any different than a infield pop-up? the catcher had the ball seconds before the runner approached him, seems the same idea, automatic out.

then again, I do agree with whoever said it, maybe it wasn't here, its the catchers fault for not blocking the plate correctly and putting on a solid tag, then again it had been 19 innings; lets just hope the season doesn't come down to a game difference

That guy should be fired. That was like little league type BS. It's the majors you've got to play til the end of the game.

You watch 19 straight innings of baseball and tell me you want it to keep going.

"Baseball. How it classifies as a sport is beyond me."

Not that I don't find baseball boring but that's just a stupid thing to say.

The League and the Umpire admit that he blew the call, here's an update.

Agree with AJ, every major sport needs instant replay. Whats the harm in getting it right?

its a game that means absolutely nothing. it may not have been the correct call, but it was the right call.

For it to have gone 19 innings and ended that way is just a disappointment, yeah I'm glad the Braves won but not like that.

did he touch the leg is the question? he clearly didn't touch the arm and it looked like he pulled back too quickly to tag

I don't know if its a full out 'blown call' as people are saying more than just a bad angle

now the astros-cardinals blown homer call was reviewed and despite clearly hitting the padding, ruled a home-run; THAT was a blown call
