Red Sox caught on obstruction call


I'm pulling for Boston, but you can see Will Middlebrooks gets in the way during a wild throw in the bottom of the 9th inning.

The city of Boston and the Red Sox were left frustrated, confused and angry by an unprecedented and wild finish to the game against the St Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.

In 109 years, no World Series game has ended with an obstruction call. But this one was decided by the controversial ruling against Boston third baseman Will Middlebrooks. This allowed Cardinals runner Allen Craig to score with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and lifted St. Louis over Boston 5-4 for a 2-1 edge.

Both sets of players and fans were left in shock.
