Key Play: Was Carlos Santana's Path To The Plate Blocked?

Indians Rally Falls Short On Controversial Play

With two out in the bottom of the eighth inning  the Toronto Blue Jays held a slim 5-4 lead over the Cleveland Indians but the Indians had the tying run in Carlos Santana at second base and Yan Gomes at the plate.

Gomes laced a single into left field that Melky Cabrera fielded and threw to the plate. The throw to the plate put Jays catcher Josh Thole right in the basepath of the charging Santana who slid into home to avoid the collision and was called out by home plate umpire Jordan Baker.
