Astros third baseman Alex Bregman tripled to lead off the sixth inning against the Rockies Wednesday.

Then he didn’t.

The umpires overtuned the call on review which was ultimately ruled fan interference and an out which took away a runner on third base with no outs for the Astros. Bregman did not agree with the call.

“There is no possible way that a left fielder jumping back into a wall is guaranteed to make a catch,”  he told reporters, via MLB.com. “It changed the whole f— game.”

On the play after Bregman’s overturned triple, J.D. Davis grounded out up the middle. In theory, had Bregman been on base he would have scored. 

Houston would finish the game with one hit. It lost 3-2 on a walk-off, ninth-inning homer by Charlie Blackmon.

Bregman had more thoughts.

“It was a f— joke and they should be ashamed of themselves,” he said, via the Houston Chronicle. “Obviously the guy has never played f— baseball before in his life, the guy in charge of whoever made that decision.”
