Umpires argue with managers and players all the time. It happens every day in the majors, but very rarely do we see an instance where multiple umpires are engaged in entirely separate arguments simultaneously. On Sunday, three of the guys in blue found themselves arguing separate calls at the same time.
With the bases loaded and the Brewers leading the Nationals 3-2, Milwuakee’s Norichika Aoki dropped down a squeeze bunt that was picked up by Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez’s throw to first nearly pulled Steve Lombardozzi off the bag, but the replay showed he was able to maintain contact long enough to get the out. The ump called the runner safe, and that’s where argument number one began.
