Big break for the Stros.  Looked to have adjusted his base path prior to reaching the base but I'll take it.

Horrible call. As you said the base is inside the line. As a right handed batter you start inside the line. He ran a straight line and veered towards the bag. Was he supposed to move over and then start running? BS call.

As the announcers said, this could be a series changing call. 2nd and 3rd with no outs and instead the runner goes back to 1st and batter is out? How does the runner not even get 2nd base?

In running the last half of the distance from home base to first base, while the ball is being fielded to first base, he runs outside (to the right of) the three-foot line, or inside (to the left of) the foul line, and in the umpire's judgment in so doing interferes with the fielder taking the throw at first base, in which case the ball is dead; except that he may run outside (to the right of) the three foot line or inside (to the left of) the foul line to avoid a fielder attempting to field a batted ball; Rule 6.05(k) Comment: The lines marking the three-foot lane are a part of that lane and a batter- runner is required to have both feet within the three-foot lane or on the lines marking the lane. The batter-runner is permitted to exit the three-foot lane by means of a step, stride, reach or slide in the immediate vicinity of first base for the sole purpose of touching first base.

Wow, who did the Astros pay to win the World Series. How can you call him out when he literally ran at first base based on where he started. Awful, awful call. Between MLB and NFL, the impact these umps and refs has is huge.

ETA: Awesome Karma right there. Should be 6-2, but without the delay maybe the HR doesn't happen. I'll take the 2 run HR any day.

You guys read this, right?  Supposed to be in the lane.  Great call.

Hope the Nats win now so that call isn't the reason the WS gets decided. 

I have no rooting interest and thought it was a bad call.

Aloha.  I'm just shticking. It's a pretty subjective call.

Martinez ejected during the stretch!

So has a manager ever been suspended for WS Game 7 before?

Can’t believe Rendon made it around the bases with those large balls dragging behind him.

They won’t do that unless Martinez kills one of them

Meh, who knows what happens without that long delay.

Not as easy to just tally the extra run as it was for the Stros in the 1st inning when Brantley was called out on that pitch 8 inches off the plate that should have been ball 4 one pitch before Bregman went yard with no one on instead of a runner on 1st.

Yep, leave him until tying run comes to the plate.

I think I agree but I’d have Hudson/Doolittle ready to go as soon as a runner gets on.

I think he would have if someone wasn't holding him back.

@SethCPayne: Joe Hale could have prevented that ejection if he hadn’t skipped leg day.
