Watch: David Murphy thrown out on bizarre play
What look to be a potential rally by the Cleveland Indians in the bottom of the seventh inning ended up being a momentum stopper as David Murphy was victimized by a second baseball. Yan Gomes had a RBI double down right field wall with David Murphy rounding third hoping to cut the lead in half; but he hesitated and ended up in the crossfire. Look and see what happens: (via MLB.com)
The second ball accidentally got away from the bullpen and onto the field which is why Murphy was caught off guard.Seems like a dead ball foul here! Oops wrong sport! I can’t believe they really called Murphy out on that play. Murphy has a case and I don’t see why they didn’t overturn the call. The potential rally ended up in a killjoy! Glad this wasn’t the difference in the game, Cleveland was served a whoopin losing 9-2 to their state rivals, the Cincinnati Reds.
