Rules Of The Game Newsbeat

Sunday, April 22, 2018

Forget that one call; Sean Manaea deserves our full attention

Rule 5.09(b)(1): Any runner is out when he runs more than three feet away from his base path to avoid being tagged unless his action is to avoid interference with a fielder fielding a batted ball. A runner’s base path is established when the tag attempt occurs and is a straight line from the runner to the base he is attempting to reach safely.

The play: In the top of the sixth, Benintendi hit a slow chopper up the line that was fielded by Oakland first baseman Matt Olson coming in on the ball. Olson picked up the grounder and dove to tag Benintendi, who veered right—with both feet clearly outside the outer edge of the running lane—and then dove back into the first-base bag. Olson never tagged him. At first, Benintendi was called safe before the play was overturned.
