Crew chief Fieldin Culbreth provided little clarification after the game.
“Well, the only thing I can tell you is that all matters concerning protests are handled through the league office,” he said.
A day earlier, a mistake in Cleveland caused a lot of commotion.
Adam Rosales and the Athletics were certain he’d hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning against the Indians. Three umpires went to a video review and instead upheld the original call on the field that the ball didn’t clear the left-field wall.
Oakland manager Bob Melvin was ejected and was later contacted with MLB officials.
The mistake drew attention all over the majors. Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said he’d never before seen an obvious miss despite replay.
“This is the first one where there definitely is a line drawn where you go, ‘Wow,’” he said.
