The Washington Nationals could not believe it when Trea Turner was called out on a strike that missed the strike zone by more than three inches.
Believe youve seen the worst strike call of the 2021 MLB season currently? Reconsider.
Perhaps Turner would have struck a house run. Well never ever understand due to the fact that he didnt get the chance to extend the at-bat.
The Phillies and Nationals were tied at 2 by the end of the ninth inning. Philadelphia took control in the 10th with 3 singles to score three runners. Philadelphia improved to 20-17 while Washington fell to 13-19.
These are the sort of calls that accumulate, especially in a video game that entered into extra innings.
Trea Turner had his capability to affect the video game taken away by a bad call.
The very first circumstances featured Philadelphia leading 1-0. There were two outs and no men on bases, so perhaps it would have made no distinction. Maybe Turner would have hit a house run. Well never understand due to the fact that he didnt get the possibility to lengthen the at-bat.
The particular result is less essential than the principle. When you cant trust an umpire to get basic calls right, its not okay.
The Phillies and Nationals were connected at 2 by the end of the ninth inning. Philadelphia took control in the 10th with three singles to score three runners. Washington had no answer in the bottom of the 10th.
Philadelphia enhanced to 20-17 while Washington fell to 13-19. The previous is second in the NL East. The latter more strengthened their location at the bottom of the department.
Wednesdays video game in between the Nationals and Phillies entered a brand-new competitor into the discussion.
This one comes thanks to house plate umpire Nick Mahrley, whose strike call against Trea Turner was all sorts of dreadful.
Thats a call you d anticipate to see Angel Hernandez make.
The additional bothersome bit is how the ball placement mirrored the previous pitch, which was called a ball. If you call it one way, youve got to be at least consistent.
It wasnt the only headscratcher either. Another Twitter user pointed out an outright ball call later in the game.
