Phillips’ appeal for inside-the-park homer denied by MLB


Brandon Phillips, the Cincinnati Reds talented second baseman felt that he had an inside-the-park homer on Monday night in his team’s 10-9 loss at Cleveland. He felt so strongly, he appealed to MLB.

However, the opinion that counts the most, Major League Baseball, says no!

Phillips’ and his agent’s appeal to Major League Baseball for a scoring change was denied on Wednesday. MLB allows appeals of scoring changes, but a player has to do it through his agent.

In the fifth inning of Monday’s 10-9 loss to the Indians, Phillips lined a ball down the left-field line that was misplayed by Johnny Damon and led to Phillips scoring on the play.

The official scorer ruled the play an RBI double for Phillips, with an error on Damon. Phillips and the Reds felt he should have been credited with an inside-the-park home run.

Phillips is not mad, he said “losing the game is more important to him.”
