Red Sox Get Bailed Out by Controversial Tag Call of Austin Jackson

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffOctober 17, 2013

In the bottom of the second in Game 4 of the ALCS, the Boston Red Sox caught a lucky break when Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson was called out following this play at second by shortstop Stephen Drew. 

In calling him out, the umpire ruled that Drew was in the neighborhood of the bag, but replays show he wasn't very close at all. Bad break for the Tigers.
