Replay catches Albert Pujols off bag and costs LA Angels in loss at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas >> Somehow, what happened to the Angels and Albert Pujols on Friday night seems so obviously right and obviously wrong at the same time.

The key play in the Angels’ 4-2 loss to the Texas Rangers was an instant replay challenge, resulting in Pujols being called out for barely lifting his foot off the bag while Roughned Odor held a tag on him.

It snuffed out a promising rally, just before the Rangers turned the game around.

(...)It hasn’t always been that way, but since the advent of replay, this is what tag plays have become. Used to be, if a player overslid a bag or made a move toward the next base, umpires would call him out if he was tagged. Now that instant replay has allowed for greater scrutiny, players are being called out for the most incidental, barely-perceptible milliseconds of lost contact with the bag.
