CSF just beat Arizona State 3-2 behind a two run ninth inning which included a walk-off balk which was called on the fourth pitch of an intentational walk for not coming to a stop which I did not see on the replays. This was a great game that might have been decided by a bad call from an umpire. Jason Urquidez and Ricky Romero pitched great and both deserved to win. Urquidez pitched 7.2 innings only letting up 1 run on 2 hits. Ricky Romero was just as impressive by letting up 2 ER on 3 hits while getting the complete game. His only mistake was a 2 run homer to Travis Buck.
This is the quote from the Crew Chief
“It was a violation of rule 9-3j (which says) the pitcher has to come to a complete and discernable stop,” crew chief and second base umpire Paul Guillie said following the game. “The call was made on the 3-0 count. The third base umpire made the call.”
