Watch: Rizzo Interferes with Pirates’ Chances to Win, Blasts Reviewed HR
With a 4-3 lead and one out with none on in the top of the 7th, the Pirates opted to pitch to Anthony Rizzo. He rewarded their decision to not go all unwritten rules-y by blasting a home run to deep right-center.
And in keeping with Monday’s controversial slide, this one had to come down to a replay review to ensure that the Cubs fan in the stands hadn’t interfered with it. The home run call was upheld, but we’ll have to wait for Joe Torre’s ruling Wednesday to know whether that was the right call.
