San Diego Padres manager Bob Melvin is the latest MLB skipper fuming over an overturned call at home plate because of a blocking violation by a catcher.

The controversial play occurred when Blake Sabol of the San Francisco Giants was thrown out at home in the fifth inning of Wednesday’s game. However, the call was overturned and Sabol was ruled safe following a review because the umpires deemed that Padres catcher Gary Sanchez blocked the plate. Melvin was subsequently ejected from the contest for voicing his displeasure over the decision:

“The throw took (Sanchez) up the line,” Melvin said postgame, according to Michael Wagaman of The Associated Press. “Based on where he started, it looked like they showed the replay from when the throw was already on the way, and as a catcher, you have to have some feel for that.

“You’ve got to also understand the impact and where the runner was. To me, it was just one of the worst calls I’ve seen this year.”

The call occurred a day after the Chicago White Sox beat the Texas Rangers on a similar play at the plate involving a blocking violation.
