Astros third baseman Alex Bregman tripled to lead off the sixth inning against the Rockies Wednesday.Then he didn’t.The umpires Babe Ruth Jersey overtuned the call on reviewwhich was ultimately ruled fan interference and an out which took away a runner on third base with no outs for the Astros. Bregman did not agree with the call.”There is no po sible way that a left fielder jumping back into a wall is guaranteed to make a catch,”he told reporters, via “It changed the whole f game.”Bregman triples, fan interference, out. Full video in our FaceBook group. Join here Stros Nation (@StrosNation) July 26, 2018On the play after Bregman’s overturned triple, J.D. Davis grounded out up the middle. In theory, had Bregman been on base he would have scored.Houston would finish the game with one hit. It lost 3-2 on a walk-off, ninth-inning homer by Charlie Blackmon.Bregman had more thoughts.”It was a f joke and they should be ashamed of themselves,” he said, via the Houston Chronicle. “Obviously the guy has never played f baseball before in his life, the guy in charge of whoever made that decision.”Alex Bregman was seething.On his triple that was overturned by a fan interference call. Chandler Rome (@Chandler_Rome) July 26, 2018Bregman made sure to make the point Thursday his complaint was with the review official rather than the umpires on the field.”The umpires on the field, they dod a great job,” he told reporters, via “It’s tough. It’s tough. I was frustrated, obviously, due to what happened early in the game, but that’s a tough call (on the check swing later) and it could have gone either way. Those guys do a great job.”Astros 3B Alex Bregman wasn’t upset at the field umps in his postgame comments last night. When asked about the field umps, he said: Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) July 26, 2018
