Today in “manager challenges you didn’t expect to see”: Craig Counsell successfully challenging the Brewers’ Khris Davis being called out after hitting a home run. Home plate ump Will Little called Davis out after the Giants appealed, tossing the ball to the plate claiming the Milwaukee outfielder hadn’t touched it after his first-inning homer. The evidence we have here isn’t entirely convincing, though one assumes MLB’s replay office had a better angle. But who had a better angle than Little, who was two feet away from the plate and watching for Davis to touch it?
