MLB fans tend to give Angel Hernandez a tough time, and he's not the only umpire or referee that goes through this. But when you're in just the 11th percentile of all umpires in accuracy and in the 27th percentile in consistency, there's probably a somewhat legitimate reason for the fans getting so frustrated with such consistency.

On Tuesday, it was probably White Sox fans who were frustrated, seeing as they lost 5-3 to the Tigers as the playoffs draw near. However, they were actually the beneficiaries of one of Hernandez's worst-called games to date in the 2021 season, and that's saying something.

Hernandez's overall accuracy and consistency on the season are at 92.4 and 95.5 percent, respectively, but those figures dropped to 86.8 and 88.7 in Tuesday night's outing, making for his second least accurate and No. 1 least consistent performance of the year.
