Braves-Giants: Paul Emmel's Strike Zone May Need Adjusting

We all saw it-Paul Emmel’s Strike zone in the 9th inning got a bit ridiculous on us. MLB.com’s gameday screwed up in Nate McLouth’s at bat, so there’s at least one more terrible strike call that I can’t show, but here’s a screencap of the Heyward and McCann ABs.

Terrible time for him to decide to expand the strike zone. Heyward clearly should have walked instead of being called out strikes. Keep in mind, Paul Emmel is the same man who called Buster Posey safe at second prior to his scoring the only run in the series opener.
