Tight strike zone.

"...and woe betide fateful curiosity should it ever succeed in peering through a crack in the chamber of consciousness, out and down into the depths, and thus gain an intimation of the fact that humanity, in the indifference of its ignorance, rests on the pitiless, the greedy, the insatiable, the murderous."

He struck out Utley twice there. Rookies don't get the same strike zone from certain umpires.

Smart play by Andrelton to keep his foot off the bag until B.J. was tagged.

That's ridiculous. I've never seen that overturned. There has to be evidence that it was not a homerun, like hitting the chain fence that's in play on the first overturned call.

Looked like a HR to me by BJ Upton. Not sure how they overturn that. Looked to me like it hit the guys hand after it was going to clear the metal screened face. Booo!!!

I thought it would have stayed in. But i thought there had to be hard evidence to overturn a call. Based on this article though, fan interference is a ground rule double, so i'll eat my words.

That was great work by Simmons to block the bag. That's the only reason Mayberry was out because he wasn't far off the bag.

I hate Kruk. I hate all these announcers. Utley would've caught it had he not been trying to transfer it to throw it to first.
