Dave Roberts was heated after umpire missed call to end game

Dave Roberts upset

Dave Roberts was heated after he felt umpire Derek Thomas missed a call that would have ended the Los Angeles Dodgers’ game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

The Dodgers were leading the Marlins 3-1 in the top of the 9th. Miami had the bases loaded with two outs and pinch hitter Jesus Sanchez batting against Brusdar Graterol. Sanchez checked his swing on a 2-2 pitch, and the Dodgers thought he went around.

Roberts was ticked off and could be seen telling Thomas that the umpire missed the call.

Luckily for the Dodgers, Enrique Hernandez made a nice play on the next pitch and was able to throw out Sanchez at first for the final out.

The Dodgers swept the doubleheader with the Marlins, winning both games 3-1. But the second game should have ended a pitch earlier.
