DENVER — The San Diego Padres are no longer raising any objections over an umpire's raised arms, even if the reaction contributed to a triple play.
Infielder Chase Headley says his team has turned the page on the bizarre chain of events Sunday that ran the Padres out of a tie game in the ninth inning against Los Angeles. The Dodgers won 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth.
On Monday, Major League Baseball conceded in a statement the call by plate umpire Dale Scott on Jesus Guzman's bunt was correct, but said the veteran crew chief's mechanics were not.
Headley was on first base when the play occurred. The Padres played at Denver on Monday night.
