In the third inning of Friday night’s San Francisco Giants-San Diego Padres game at Petco Park, a routine fly ball along the third base line wasn’t caught because an umpire boxed out Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford.
Umpire Tim Timmons was caught watching third baseman Pablo Sandavol, keeping Crawford from making the catch.
Timmons ruled that the ball landed in foul territory, even though it clearly hit the chalk line. The Giants went on to win the game 10-1.
