Sorry to burst your bubble: Brewers’ Carlos Gomez blows a bubble while the Brewers take on the Toronto Blue Jays during the second inning of their MLB baseball interleague game in Milwaukee.
The Jays game last night ended on kind of an odd note. Aramis Ramirez’s liner down the left-field line was ruled a home run after umpires reversed a foul ball call using video replay in the seventh inning that snapped a tie and lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-6 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.
Ramirez hit a 1-2 pitch off rookie Robert Coello (0-1) that hit the outside corner of a yellow pad below the foul pole. Third base umpire Paul Nauert ruled it a foul ball. He agreed to check video replay after discussing the play with Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke and third base coach Ed Sedar while watching a fan dramatically pound the pad in question.
Umpires spent about 90 seconds checking the replay, before returning and signalling a home run for Ramirez, his eighth of the year.
