Bochy on a rampage
Gary Darling ejected him this time. Apparently we’ve had bad calls and a reversal. More later.
UPDATE: It appears that the game was a badly umpired affair all around — but that Bochy was wrong and Darling right on the call at first leading to the ejection. On the other hand, Pablo Sandoval was apparently hit by a pitch — I have a long rant on HBP saved up, though I don’t know when I’ll be able to write it — but the umpire ruled that he fouled it off his bat. Nonetheless, there was a bases-clearing
brawl milling about after the pitch. And then in the top of the ninth, Darling pulled a rare two-fer, ejecting the Giants’ acting manager Ron Wotus, leaving the team in the hands of the third-base coach. Wotus was arguing a safe call at first on a Rafael Furcal grounder; Furcal probably should have been called out (it was very close, but I thought the throw beat him) and later came around to score the tying run.
