The Texas Rangers Successfully Pull The Wool Over The Umpires’ Eyes


You have to give the Texas Rangers credit for pulling a fast one on the umpire’s Friday night in Seattle. Seattle’s Jesus Sucre did his best to not be the second out of a double play after his grounder. After successfully converting the force out at second base, Elvis Andrus tossed the ball to first but the ball was intercepted by Texas pitcher Justin Grimm. Mitch Moreland was supposed to grab the ball as he was on first, and it looked like he actually did. Somehow the first base umpire Jeff Nelson called Sucre out at first, and Grimm headed back to the mound like nothing happened. Very odd.
