Faux no hitter
on December 30, 2012
To start the sixth, Carlos Beltran, in his first game at Citi Field since leaving the Mets last year, scorched a shot down the line. A replay showed Beltran hit the white chalk on the third-base line. Umpire Adrian Johnson ruled it a foul ball and Beltran ended up grounding out.
"I saw the ball hitting outside the line, just foul," Johnson said to a pool reporter after the game.
Johnson said he saw the replay, but upon further review, declined to comment if he thought the ball was fair or foul.
So in reality it was a one hitter.
The chalk clearly flew up in the air. Johnson blew the call. There's nothing bitter or hating when stating the facts except from rude New Yorkers.
