From ESPN.com: the match story mentions the incident (http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=320919320
) without mentioning Porter. The 'Sweet Spot' blog mentions this in passing as well but again without mentioning Porter (http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/29092/dodgers-living-on-the-edge
) - key quote (emphasis added):
'The Dodgers scored three runs in the third inning. Kemp and Gonzalez drew key walks, and Hanley Ramirez and Ethier knocked in runs. They scored three more in the fourth. Kemp had an RBI single. He later scored a controversial run (replays showed he hadn't crossed the plate before a tag was made on Gonzalez).
It was just the second time the Dodgers had scored at least six runs in 18 games. They'd scored two or fewer in nine of those games.'
Wonder why the journos are so deferential toward the umpires - do they think Richie Phillips still runs the umpires' union and is going to sue them or something? Or is it just the same old deference to 'big market' and other 'royal favourite' clubs....
