    That was a heartbreaker for the Red Sox. To battle back like they did all evening and them to lose the game on an umpiring call must be hard to swallow. It seems like the umpires have been the main storyline so far, which I'm sure they loathe. It was the right call and I heard that MLB will review the rule and take a look at intent. That would make sense. Middlebrooks had no where to go. I think the Series comes down to Game 4 now. If the Cardinals win, it's over. If the Red Sox can find a way, it will be a great finish.moreless

    Tough way to lose a game here, it probably was the right call, but you can also make the argument that inadvertent interference should not be called in that position.



    Still, baseball has to be loving this as this is good controversy to have, as opposed to the PED nonsense. This is proving to be a fun World Series, but hopefully the Red Sox find a way to win the next two.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Final Score:
      Boston 4 St. Louis 5
      St. Louis leads series 2-1

    • MLB dedicated Game 3 those in underserved communities, through MLB's RBI and Breaking Barriers programs. Youth from both programs were recognized on-field during pregame ceremonies.
      Former St. Louis outfielder Willie McGee threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
      The national anthem was sung by Colbie Caillat.
      God Bless America was sung by Retired Navy Petty Officer First Class Generald Wilson.

    • The concluding play of Game 3 was one of the most unusual in the 109-year history of the World Series. With the score tied 4-4, St. Louis placed runners on second (Allen Craig) and third (Yadier Molina) with one out. Against a drawn in infield, center fielder Jon Jay hit a one-hopper to second that Dustin Pedroia dove to stop. He threw home and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia tagged Molina for the second out. He then threw to third in an attempt to get Craig, who was trying to move up a base. The throw eluded third baseman Will Middlebrooks who, in diving to make the catch, ended up landing prone in front of Craig, who then tripped over Middlebriooks' feet. Umpire Jim Joyce immediately ruled obstruction and granted home plate to Craig.
      .
      Rule 2.0 of the Official Baseball Rules states that obstruction is the act of a fielder who, while not in possession of the ball and not in the act of fielding the ball, impedes the progress of any runner.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (on the game ending play in which third base umpire Jim Joyce ruled fielder interference on Will Middlebrooks for tripping Allen Craig and allowing Craig to score the game winning run)
      Third Base Umpire Jim Joyce: With the defensive player on the ground, without intent or intent, it's still obstruction. You'd probably have to ask Middlebrooks that one, if he could have done anything. But that's not in our determination.
      .
      St. Louis Catcher Yadier Molina: I'm in shock right now. Wow, it's unbelievable.
      .
      Boston Third Baseman Will Middlebrooks: I just know I have to dive for that ball. I'm on the ground. There's nowhere for me to go. As I'm getting up, he trips over me. I don't know what else to say.
      .
      St. Louis Left Fielder Matt Holliday: You hate for it to end on a somewhat controversial play. You would like for it to end a little cleaner, but that's part of it. We'll take it.
      .
      St. Louis Pinch Hitter Allen Craig: He was in my way. I couldn't tell you if he tried to trip me or not. I was just trying to get over him
      .
      Boston Manager John Farrell: Tough way to have a game end, particularly of this significance.
