  1. DRR says:

    That home run that Nelson gave up in the 9th (that cost the Bulls the game) was clearly a foul ball. One of the worst blown calls I have ever seen.

    • RTPGiants says:

      Awful call. Montoyo got tossed arguing it and he was the maddest I've ever seen him. The reason for the argument is that it was a "homerun" to left and with a 3 man crew, somehow the 1B ump made the call rather than the home plate ump. Awful.
