Joe Torre, speaking on behalf of Major League Baseball, Joe Torre officially announced that the Braves' protest of Friday's game has been denied.
Torre explained that he disallowed the protest because it was a "judgment call". While it's a tough situation, the odds were extremely unlikely that the call was going to be reversed, even though it probably should have. Still, it's not the reason that the Braves lost the game, as they were still facing a three-run deficit after throwing the ball around the infield all evening.
