I'm a die hard Braves fan, but this was probably the WORST call I've ever seen in ANY baseball game. I hated winning like this, and I don't blame the Pirates for getting so angry.. I would've too! I also don't care if that umpire was tired & made the call to get the game over with.. Did he not think the players were tired to? They had played that long & the ump just gives the Braves the win?? That ump needs to do his freaking job & if he can't, he needs to just quit!

Bad call. Not the first time. Won't be the last.

I thought one of the worst calls in Baseball was when Veteran Umpire, Jim Joyce robbed Arizona DB pitcher, Armando Galarraga
of a perfect game. Throwing a perfect game doesn't come but once in a lifetime in a pitcher's career. A rare acheivement blown.
