Tuesday night’s triumph by the Chicago White Sox over the Texas Rangers was marred by controversy when a play was reversed by video review and contributed to the AL Central team’s victory.
Zach Remillard of the White Sox was up to bat against Grant Anderson of the Rangers in the bottom of the eighth inning. Elvis Andrus, a shortstop for the White Sox, who was on second base, was the winning run. In an effort to give Chicago the lead, Andrus raced home after Remillard hit to shallow left field.
Travis Jankowski, a Rangers left fielder, caught the ball and tossed it to catcher Jonah Heim at home. A bang-bang play seems to be what it was. Heim was positioned to grab the ball at home and Jankowski’s throw was perfectly accurate. When Heim successfully tagged out Andrus, it appeared that the inning was over.
