Blatant missed call in the Braves-Brewers game showed how broken MLB’s replay system is

During the fourth inning of Tuesday’s NLDS Game 4, Adam Duvall popped up a foul ball near the backstop. Brewers catcher Omar Narvaez botched the catch, but third baseman Luis Urias came diving in on the backup to make what looked like an awesome heads-up catch.

The problem: The ball hit the ground. Like, it was clear.

Braves manager Brian Snitker signaled that he wanted to challenge the call. The umpiring crew even put on the headset, and moments later, the Truist Park PA announced that the call had been overturned. It wasn’t, though.

The call had to stand because MLB replay rules don’t allow for catch/no catch calls in the infield to be reviewed. It’s fine for plays in the outfield because of course.

Hoskins’ HR called back by replay in stunner

Rhys Hoskins could not believe how quickly his fortunes turned.

He thought he hit a game-tying, three-run home run to right field with two outs in the ninth inning on Sunday night against the Mets at Citizens Bank Park. He thought he made up for a defensive gaffe that opened the floodgates in the eighth as the Phillies turned a two-run lead into a four-run deficit. But after Hoskins crossed home plate and celebrated the 100th home run of his career with his teammates in the Phillies’ dugout, the replay official in New York ruled that the ball had hit the top of the metal railing and ricocheted back onto the field.

Hoskins’ clutch milestone homer turned into a two-run double instead. Bryce Harper struck out swinging to end the game. The Phillies lost, 8-7.

“They had clear evidence to turn it over, and that’s what it was,” Hoskins said.
