Some home cooking by the home plate umpire.
The box on TV and JT's reaction say strike. Ump says ball.
The home plate umpire is just bad. Has been all game.
A-Rod says strike.
Don’t like pitcher change here.
Please baseball gods.

Paul Goldschmidt strikes out swinging.
Thats a huge strike out for Seranthony.
Goldschmit bailed us out there.
Goldschmidt so far is performing like Schmidt did in 1980 NLCS after he won the NL MVP.
do the cardinals ever get a check swing called on them?

SERANTHONY! Never a doubt.
For god sakes tack some on this inning.
He is matching Rhys Hoskins AB for AB, which is working out for us because typically theres a significant gap between them
Phillies pitchers coming up big tonight. One more inning, and it looks to belong to Eflin.
Edit: Or does it? No one throwing in the bullpen at the moment. Never mind - he sat down, but now is throwing again
