You can’t help but question the umpiring after Game 5 of the NLDS between the Giants and Dodgers. And it’s a shame.
It’s an epic rivalry born in 1890, one that has spanned 2,521 games. The rivalry reached its arguable zenith at Oracle Park Thursday night -- and through 53 outs and 278 pitches -- the showdown lived up to the billing. Until first-base umpire Gabe Morales had to strip baseball, its fans, the Giants and the Dodgers of a legitimate ending.
