CLEVELAND (AP) - Athletics manager Bob Melvin says he has been in contact with Major League Baseball regarding the disputed ninth-inning call in Wednesday night's game.
After watching a replay, umpires ruled the ball hit by Oakland's Adam Rosales with two outs was a double and not a game-tying homer. TV replays showed the ball cleared the 19-foot-high wall and struck a railing. Melvin does not know if the call will be overturned, but expects baseball officials to comment.
The Indians won 4-3 and Melvin was ejected by second-base umpire Angel Hernandez.
The manager said before Thursday's game he has not changed his mind, still certain Rosales' hit was a homer. He says the call ``came down to somebody's decision and that was probably against the grain for what the majority thought.''
