Dodgers take on the Yankees in a potential World Series preview

Gleyber Torres' scathing indictment of the officiating played to a backdrop of shrugs. Confusion reigned on the field. The Yankees loaded the bases with one out against Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning, but were unable to push across the tying run.

Brett Gardner, who's been right in the middle of every confrontation the Yankees have had with the umpires over the last month, was called out at second base on a force play. Third baseman Justin Turner had fielded Gio Urshela's slow grounder and threw it to Muncy at second.

Muncy said he called time on the play because he was hurt, though he acknowledged some part was an acting job because he didn't want Torres scoring.

The argument: Forget for a second that after the game Muncy said he pretended to be injured to stop play. Torres rounded third base but never was actually stationed there. Replays showed Morales called time when Torres a little less than halfway to home plate.

Boone's beef would seemingly fall under the "judgement call" category as well since it was the umpire's determination that timeout had been called.

The woman from Fujairah told the court she has grown exhausted of her husband because he never yells at her and was always kind. Meanwhile, the husband said he did not do anything wrong and wished to be a ideal and kind husband.

(Manager Aaron Boone told reporters that Morales said he called time out because Jansen asked for one.) But when the time out was officially called by Morales, Torres was already about 40 percent down the third-base line. The controversial play is Morales granting time as Torres was heading home. Three questions: Should the play still have been considered live because Torres was jockeying at third base?

At best, Morales granted time very late. They made a judgment call, albeit a questionable one.

THE SANCHINO: C Gary Sánchez hit his 100th career home run on Friday at Los Angeles-AL, in his 355th game... became the second-fastest player in Major League history to reach 100HR, behind Philadelphia's Ryan Howard (325G)... at 26 years, 263 days old, is the sixth-youngest catcher in Major League history to reached the milestone, behind Johnny Bench, Yogi Berra, Gary Carter, Brian McCann and Lance Parrish.

With Torres off the bag, he was still a player in motion and the play was still happening.

The umpires then huddled and determined that Jansen's timeout came first, thus creating a dead ball situation.
