The ball bounced off his glove and back into the field of play.

The Los Angeles Dodgers' and Colorado Rockies' tiebreaker, sources told Yahoo Sports, had multiple accusations of deceit as well, with concerns of someone signaling batters from center field and another in which signals were relayed to a third-base coach from the tunnel and then passed along to the batter.

Bottom of the 1st, Jose Altuve hits a shot to right field where Mookie Betts was sizing up for a potential catch, but the ball would end up bouncing back into the field of play.

Their 3-1 lead in the series, with two games at Fenway Park awaiting them if they needed them, made Game 5 an interesting philosophical proposition for the Red Sox: Do you go all-out for a clinching victory, or do you save some bullets for Game 6 and maybe Game 7?

A key to the final decision was West's interference call on the field. "All of a sudden, it wasn't even a double, it was an out".

However, Kandahar Police Chief Abdul Razik and Intelligence Chief Abdul Mohmin were pronounced dead at the scene. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

"I have to have my hat ready to catch it, '" Howard said. "It's tough. That was two runs in the first inning that would have helped us a bit more".

Replays appeared to show that Betts' left arm stretched over the wall and into the sea of fans.

By the rule book, a clear home run.

While the subsequent review built a fairly substantive case that because Betts had reached beyond the field of play thus negating the fan interference, review officials in NY ruled there was nothing definitive.

Some fans responded that, woman or not, Kate's take on the play was wrong and she simply got called out for it. George Springer was on first when Altuve took the plate.

Why Western bluster over Khashoggi won't lead to sanctions against Saudi Arabia

"To be honest with you, this year's team is better than last year's team, I believe", said third baseman Alex Bregman, who reached base 10 times in the first three games of the series, but went 0-for-9 in Games 4 and 5.

"It's hard. It's always hard", said Verlander, who's been to the playoffs seven times in 14 years and owns one World Series ring. "I got my hand out, and the ball hit my hand. I'm 100 percent positive I was going to be able to catch that one", he said. However, he claimed he felt a fan push his glove out of the way.

The rule reads: "No interference shall be allowed when a fielder reaches over a fence, railing, rope or into a stand to catch a ball".

The Red Sox are going to the World Series.

Watching Houston submit in five games to Boston is yet another reminder how preposterous an achievement it was by those Yankees clubs to win three straight and four of five.
