For my money, given where the yellow lines are, that should be a triple, not a HR, but I don't know what the ground rules are for the fence extending into the field of play.

Nothing I hate more than losing a winnable game “saving” a good pitcher to pitch with a hypothetical lead.

Yeah. There’s a fence that is higher than where that ball was hit. And that wouldn’t be a homer.

Thanks for the performance argument about a clear HR after you put in a garbage pitcher when the game was tied. Go fuck yourself Cora.

The ball looked definitively fair. If the padding on the foul pole is considered part of the fence than it's a ball off the wall. If it's considered over the fence (as it probably should be) then it should be a homer.

I assume Cora was tossed because he argued a play that was reviewed.
