The Dodgers bats struggled to get going on get-away day in Philadelphia. Looking to take the series sweep, Los Angeles had something cooking in the top half of the 5th inning. They got 2 runners on and a wild pitch got the tying run into scoring position.
Trea Turner would then come up and hit a sharp groundball to shortstop Didi Gregorious. He came up with it and fired over to first to an outstretched Brad Miller. The call went against the Dodgers, but they were able to get one run across.
But on the replay, it seemed very clear that Miller had come off of the bad during his stretch to get Turner. The Dodgers challenged the play and there weren’t many in the stadium anticipating the call to go against them. But it did.

The call was upheld and the Dodgers would end the inning 2 batters later when Albert Pujols grounded into a force out. So we’ll let you guys make the call on what you think they call should have been. Did Miller keep his foot on the bag during his stretch? Or did Los Angeles get beat by the review crew today?
The Dodgers would go on to drop the final game of the series and fall to 4.5 games out of the NL West with the Giants scheduled to play later. They head to New York next to take on the Mets in a 3-game series over the weekend.
