From Larry Brown Sports:

The Orioles missed tying Game 5 of the ALDS against the Yankees by inches when umpires ruled that a fly ball hit by left fielder Nate McLouth was foul.

McLouth was batting in the top of the sixth with the Orioles down 1-0 went he blasted a 3-1 pitch deep down the right field line. The ball seemed to be foul, but then it started curving toward the pole at the last second.

The initial call by the right field umpire was that the ball was foul. The umpires gathered to review the play using instant replay, and they let the original call on the field stand. McLouth struck out on the next pitch.

Later in the game, TBS sideline reporter Craig Sager says he spoke with an usher who believed the ball "nicked" the foul pole.

Replays were inconclusive, but after seeing zoomed-in, spot-shadowed looks on TBS, I believe it did touch the pole. The trajectory of the ball changed as it got to the pole.

Instead of being tied 1-1, the Orioles remained down 1-0 and didn't get on the board until the eighth inning. They lost the game 3-1, and the Yankees advanced to the ALCS.

  • Sorry UMPS! You screwed up! As a Physics Major, I saw the ball pick up speed, which as per Newtow's Laws indicates a change in velocity or direction. This ball definitely hit the outside of the Foul Pole and by Baseball's own rules is ruled a Homerun! By the way you do not have to be a Scientist here, just good eyes!
  • Physics major..hmmmm optics is part of physics right? the study of light and vision... how light can be used to trick the brain....i agree when the ball passes from the shaded part of the pole to the illuminated part in one of the camera angles, it does appear to change speeds....however if you set up all the camera angles to play at the same time (synchronized) you will see that when the ball passes the pole you can still see daylight between the pole and the ball....give it a look...also look at the hight of the ball when it passes the pole...it passes well above the illuminated yankee sign on the face of the third deck....check the other angle the ball at that hight is clearly to the right of the pole
  • i saw it on tv if it had hit it would have veered to the left it did not veer an inch it went by about afoot from foul side of pole so stop crying mcmouth you asshole

Column: Day of reckoning had to come for A-Rod

(Eds: With AP Photos.)

On June 20, 2003, Miguel Cabrera struck out in his first big league at bat.  He’d get the last laugh however. In the bottom of the eleventh inning the 20-year-old rookie hit a two-run home run to help his then-Florida Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the then-Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Now, I bring that up only to awkwardly segue into this. Friday, the reigning American League MVP turned...
