The Yankees lost a game tonight, not solely but in part because of a blown umpiring call at second base. Pinch-runner Willie Bloomquist stole second base in the eighth and scored the tying run, but umpire Jerry Davis admitted after the game that he got it wrong. Bloomquist was tagged out at second by Robinson Cano, which should have been the third out of the inning.
"I didn't just miss the call, I kicked the [bleep] out of it," Davis told a pool reporter after the game. [courant yankees blog]
