…. Out of time?

My only complaint with this weekend’s games with the Dodgers (other than the fact that I wanted the Gianst to win ‘em all) is that I thought the umpiring work was terrible, and until that one call in the eighth inning yesterday, almost all of it went against the home team.

Starting with Friday’s game, in which Reuter took the mound in the fourth inning with a two-run lead, and was inexplicably squeezed to the tune of six consecutive ball calls (four in a row to Beltre, of which only one was a sure thing). After going to 2-0 against Green, I turned to my wife and started to say, “tie game,” but before I could get the words out, it was. In my opinion, the same thing was happening to Tomko yesterday. In that pivotal fifth inning, he hit the black numerous times, only to see the home plate ump say no. The Eddings call at third was the icing, but, unlike Reuter, who lives on the outside corner call, Tomko was dealing, and he was getting no calls at all.

Meanwhile, Weaver, Perez, essentially the entire Dodgers pitching staff seemed like they were going 0-1 against the Giants hitters the whole weekend. Other than that, if you’re gonna let Alex Cora beat you up, you deserve to lose.
