Cardinals: Jack Flaherty leaves start with concerning shoulder injury by Scott Rogust.
The Atlanta Braves were screwed over by immediate replay against the New York Yankees on Tuesday night. Were not actually sure why.
The video, as follows, appears to reveal Freddie Freeman sliding under the glove of catcher Gary Sanchez. That is not the analysis of the umpiring crew, nevertheless.
Call is upheld. Sure looked like he got his foot on the plate ahead of the tag on his back. However replay system is flawed because umps wont change any call unless absolutely indisputable proof, which is unusual.
So, its 4-3 Yankees after 5 inn. Rodriguez starts 6th for #Braves.

Call is maintained. Sure looked like he got his foot on the plate ahead of the tag on his back. Replay system is flawed in that umps wont change any call unless definitely unassailable evidence, which is unusual.
That would have been the tying run. Instead, the Braves were down a run as of the messed up replay.
Well have more for a short while.
Replay goes against the Braves. Who knows why.

Braves fans and MLB media alike criticized the call, and for excellent factor.
