Giancarlo Stanton, Transfer Rule, Doom Mariners In Loss


The new transfer rule strikes again. Yoervis Medina gave up a walk-off grand slam to Giancarlo Stanton after an overturned out extended the inning, giving the Miami Marlins an 8-4 win over the visiting Seattle Mariners Friday.

The Marlins jumped on Mariners starter Chris Young in the first with two runs. But the M’s tied it up in the top of the 2nd with an RBI single by Dustin Ackley that became an inside-the-park homer via error as right fielder Stanton misplayed the ball.

The Marlins answered back with a sac fly in the bottom of the 2nd and a solo homer in the 3rd to take the lead at 4-2.

With the score 4-3, the M’s tied it again in the 7th with a Corey Hart RBI single. Joe Beimel, Tom Wilhelmsen and Charlie Furbush all held serve through 4.1 scoreless innings. In the 8th, Yoervis Medina came in and got the final two outs of the 8th.

But in the 9th, Reed Johnson and Christian Yelich singled to leadoff the inning. Marcell Ozuna then hit a comebacker to Medina, who fielded the ball and threw to Kyle Seager for the force at 3rd. The dreaded secured catch reared its ugly head again against the M’s as the force out at 3rd was overturned by replay, confirming that Seager bobbled the ball.

See the play below.

So with the bases loaded and no one out, Stanton hit a 1-2 curveball to left-center for a walk-off grand slam. The Mariners have now lost four in a row.  They look to break the skid Saturday back in Miami against the Marlins.

    OK Let us say you have a ground ball with no one on and a bad throw pulls the first baseman into the running lane and he gets nailed . Although a step or two before that the ball is held securely and the 1st basemen has his foot on the bag. He has control you heard and saw the loud pop plus he had control.
    In that case i would call him out since it is a force play. Guarendamtee you they will screw it up.
