BOSTON — Crimson Sox supervisor John Farrell says Boston will transfer ahead with a formal protest over the lack of an interference call in a 4-1, 16-inning loss to the brand new York Yankees.
Holliday walked leading of the 11th Saturday and Jacoby Ellsbury followed with a grounder to first baseman Mitch Moreland, who threw to second for a forceout. Holliday retreated towards first and slid into the bag as shortstop Xander Bogaerts’ throw arrived.
Moreland wasn’t able to succeed in the ball, which hit Ellsbury and bounced into foul territory. Farrell argued for an interference name, but umpires allowed Ellsbury to stay on first.
“We nonetheless firmly believe there has been interference at the play and if it goes unaddressed or without any additional consideration delivered to it, who’s to mention you’ll be able to’t tutor runners to do the same going ahead?” Farrell stated Sunday.
Holliday said he was once unaware Moreland did not touch first prior to throwing to 2nd.
