Umpire Andy Fletcher with the WORST call of the year during the Phillies game tonight
The Philadelphia Phillies are currently up 1-0 against the Atlanta Braves on FOX in the bottom of the sixth inning. What happened in the bottom of the fifth inning with umpire Andy Fletcher and the young Phillies outfielder Daulton Guthrie is now going viral on social media.
In what can only be described as the worst call of the year, this slider from Max Fried was called a strike to retire Guthrie in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Andy Fletcher Called Strike on Daulton Guthrie
“Pretty good pitch, probably low…” – Fox Broadcast that continues to DRIVE ME INSANE by cutting over to the Yankees game to watch Aaron Judge bat. ENOUGH ALREADY.
Yeah okay, give me a break. That is no where near being an actual strike. No one was amused and Harper, as well as the rest of the Phillies dugout rightfully lost their shit.
Hitting coach Kevin Long looked like he was ready to kill someone.
Yes, Kevin Long was ejected from the dugout for yelling at Fletcher.
We’re in the top of the seventh inning now and it’s still 1-0 Phillies. Hoskins has a hit. Realmuto has a hit. Segura, Vierling, and Guthrie all have hits.
The Brewers already beat the Reds in Cincinnati. We really need to close this one out.
The bad calls continue…
