Granted it was a tough play, but it looked like Rick Ankiel had a clear shot at catching that fly ball from Posey. Then he couldn’t pick up the ball, which just compounded the problem. That’s four self-inflicted mistakes that have cost the Braves either an out or a base, not to mention one by the umpires. The Giants have not had that problem. And guess who’s winning (and threatening) right now.
