Umpire Gerry Davis Makes Horrific Judgment Call

For some reason the 2013 MLB season hasn't been kind to the Oakland Athletics when it comes to umpiring. Chris Young hit a game winning home run in extra innings only to have it ruled a double, Adam Rosales hit a game tying home run in Cleveland that got upheld as a double, against the Boston Red Sox a fan interfered with a ball, yet was never called and last night umpire Gerry Davis poor judgment gave the San Francisco Giants a run.

Wednesday he got an opportunity to redeem himself by using replay to make sure a ball hit by Adam Rosales was a double (the ruling on the field) or a game tying home run off Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez. After a lengthy review, Hernandez did not overturn the call. Interestingly enough after the game he didn't
