It's a little odd that on the same night as that Hayes home run was overturned, Royals minor leaguer Bobby Witt Jr. lost a home run by missing home plate! Here's the link.

I'm going to check and see if there were any others I missed from the first half.

How's this for quirky--the Tigers won, 17-14, but were out-homered, seven to none, in that game. That's a first in MLB history on two fronts--1) a team allowed seven home runs and still won the game; 2) a team hit seven home runs and still lost the game.

At first I thought this was a joke when I saw the headline - "grounds crew ejected." But it really did happen at Camden Yards last night. Article from mlb.com

And look at who has a part in it, Chris Paddack. Smile

Another quirky outcome involving a "fourth out" in the Pirates-Nationals game a few days ago, played at Nationals Park. Maybe someone was asleep at the switch?

The Pirates did win the game, barely, 8-7...but imagine how it could have gone without the confusion.
