Bad Calls Newsbeat

Max Muncy admits flopping, Yankees seek answers after controversial call

Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy admitted that he added a sprinkle of Hollywood into Saturday’s controversial 2-1 victory against the New York Yankees.

Muncy was involved in the game’s defining play, a bang-bang force out in the ninth inning that resulted in two different replay reviews and ended with a controversial timeout that ultimately negated the game-tying run.

The timeout was called by Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen and granted by the umpires after Muncy appeared injured by Brett Gardner’s hard slide.

Though according to Muncy, he was playing up his pain in order to prevent New York’s Gleyber Torres from scoring the tying run on the play.

Well, soccer has been getting more popular in the United States…..
