Yasiel Puig makes a great throw but doesn’t get the call
Bryce Harper can thank the umpire for the bad call made at third base because he was clearly tagged out when he attempted to advance from second on a Jason Werth flyball hit to right-field. Harper was the latest victim to feel the wrath of Yasiel Puig’s canon of an arm. Puig threw a rocket to third base and the tag was properly placed in time by Juan Uribe; but third base umpire Eric Cooper, didn’t see it that way. Cooper was in the best position to make a clear call and blew it.
Take a look:
There is no better arm in right-field today. The missed call by Eric Cooper was costly as it allowed Harper to score on a Ricky Nolasco’s wild pitch.
Here it is at another angle:
