CLEVELAND (AP) -A bizarre set of circumstances in Saturday night's game between the Baltimore Orioles and Cleveland Indians featured a run that was disallowed in the third inning apparently being counted three innings later.
The Orioles were leading 2-1 in the top of the third with Nick Markakis on third base and Miguel Tejada on first and one out when Ramon Hernandez hit a line drive to center field. Grady Sizemore made a diving catch and Markakis tagged up and headed for home. Tejada was around second when the ball was caught and was thrown out trying to get back to first.
It appeared Markakis crossed the plate well before Tejada was called out at first, but plate umpire Marvin Hudson waved off the run.
The umpiring crew conferred separately with Baltimore manager Sam Perlozzo and Cleveland manager Eric Wedge on two different occasions after the top of the third. After the Indians scored a run in the fifth to tie it at 2, it was announced in the bottom of the sixth that the Orioles' run in the third counted, giving Baltimore a 3-2 lead. The Indians then announced they were playing the game under protest.
