The Brewers just missed out on a big opportunity in the fifth inning. But it wasn’t all their fault.
After Arthur Rhodes walked Prince Fielder to load the bases with one out, Tony La Russa brought in right-hander Lance Lynn to face Rickie Weeks, who hit a two-run home run in his previous at-bat. Weeks hit what looked like a double-play ground ball to end the inning. The only thing is, first base umpire Sam Holbrook missed the call. Weeks was clearly safe.
And so, instead of Jerry Hairston Jr. coming to the plate with the bases loaded and two out with the score 7-3, the Cardinals currently hold a 7-2 lead. Then again, Rafael Furcal was ruled out in the top of the fourth inning when he was clearly safe at first base, so who the heck knows? If only there was some way to fix this.
