If there is actaully an in game appeal to the MLB rules committee that is allowable,
According to Joe Torre (who I would consider an authority) they could have requested rule review which would have gone to New York and would have been ruled upon on the spot.

  An appeal is different from a rule review but what I understand is that it is treated differently for a playoff game: it too has to be ruled upon on the spot (as opposed to the regular season when it can take weeks).   Torre didn't address this, so I have no authority, however at least one commentator has mentioned this (with a sense of authority).
