Los Angeles Dodgers frustrated by non-call in ninth in loss to San Francisco Giants

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “(Kelly) blocked him,” Mattingly said. “The third base coach is not allowed to block the runner from continuing in. It’s obviously interference. They missed the call, basically. I don’t know who’s supposed to be watching but they weren’t watching.”The explanation Mattingly received from third base umpire Fieldin Culbreth was simple: “He was watching the play.”Blanco told reporters that he did make contact with Kelly, “but I was already stopping. It wasn’t like he stopped me. I was already on the base. It wasn’t like he grabbed me.”Frustrating as it was, the Dodgers’ ninth-inning jam was of their own making.Buster Posey led off the inning with a one-out single off Chris Hatcher (0-2), whose next pitch hit Justin Maxwell. Howell relieved Hatcher and allowed an opposite-field single to Brandon Belt, loading the bases when Blanco stopped at third. Even Howell admitted that losing the game on a coach’s interference would not have been satisfying.“They still got the hits they needed,” Howell said. “That would have been luck. That would have been just straight lucky. I don’t know if (Blanco) was going to run or not. It’d be nice to get ‘em out truly, not from a coach touching somebody. I’d rather just get ‘em out.”And yet, that might not have been the most frustrating part of the loss.After Hatcher’s pitch hit Maxwell, it ricocheted off the helmet of catcher A.J. Ellis, then off a knuckle on his bare (right) throwing hand. Ellis had to leave the game after he was unable to make a couple of short throws back to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.Ellis told reporters after the game that X-rays on his hand were negative.Alex Guerrero’s pinch-hit, two-run home run brought the Dodgers back from a 2-0 deficit in the sixth inning against Madison Bumgarner. The Giants got both their runs off Clayton Kershaw in the third inning, using the same brand of small ball they used to strike first Tuesday. Joaquin Arias led off the inning with a single. Brandon Crawford walked and Bumgarner bunted both runners over.Norichika Aoki then hit a ground ball to shortstop, where Jimmy Rollins elected to throw to first base to get the sure out. Crawford advanced to third base and score on a single by Matt Duffy. The starting pitchers but did not figure into the decision. It was the first time the reigning regular season MVP and World Series MVP opposed each other on the mound. Both pitchers saw their workdays end at 9:19 p.m., when Guerrero pinch hit for Kershaw and hit Bumgarner’s final pitch for a home run to left field.center_img SAN FRANCISCO — They say you can throw both teams’ records out the window when the Dodgers play the Giants.They didn’t say anything about the rulebook.Dodgers manager Don Mattingly had a few reasons to be frustrated after the Giants won, 3-2, on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday at AT&T Park. Chief among them: a non-call by the umpires after Giants third base coach Roberto Kelly appeared to interfere with Gregor Blanco as Blanco rounded third base on a single to left field.Blanco tagged up and scored when the next batter, Joe Panik, flew out to center field, ending the game.last_img read more
