The Indians lost to the Reds 9-2 Tuesday night and in the seventh inning, had the most bizarre play. David Murphy got thrown out at third base but there were two balls on the field which caused confusion.
“I didn’t know where it came from,” third base coach Mike Sarbaugh told Jordan Bastian of MLB.com. “Murph did what you teach guys to do. After you find the bag, you find the ball. It just happened to be the wrong ball. I hope that never happens again.”
The second ball was an accident from the bullpen.
Update: At least the Indians are being good sports about it.
