In yesterday’s highly anticipated pitchers duel between Clayton Kershaw and the LA Dodgers versus Aaron Nola and the Philadelphia Phillies we got ourselves a bit of a controversy…

Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco drew a one-out walk against Kershaw and moved up to second on a single from Nick Williams. With two outs, Jorge Alfaro lined a single to center field, bringing Franco towards the plate. Below is video of how it went down…

Very clearly Franco never touched home plate but umpire Will Little didn’t seem to mind calling him safe anyway.

Shame on Dodgers manager Dave Roberts for never challenging the ruling and the worst part–the Dodgers lost by one run in a 2-1 ball game.
