Did Yankee fans cost their team a base in the top of the sixth inning?
Austin Jackson led off the sixth and drove a hot grounder just inside first base and down the line ...
Jackson reached third base for a triple, without a throw. In the TBS booth, Ron Darling expressed some surprise that one of the fans in the front row didn't reach over and interfere with the baseball, resulting in a double for Jackson.
But that's not the rule. The rule is that the umpire shall place the runner where he would have wound up, absent the interference. And a good umpire would have recognized that the Yankees had no shot at preventing Jackson from making it all the way to third base.
