CLEVELAND (AP) — Major League Baseball said the umpires were wrong. The Athletics knew that all along.

One day after umpire Angel Hernandez and his crew failed to reverse a call on an obvious game-tying home run by A’s infielder Adam Rosales in the ninth inning following a video review,

MLB executive vice president Joe Torre said an “improper call” was made in Wednesday’s game between the Indians and Athletics.

However, despite pointing out the critical error, Torre said the “judgment” call will stand.

Oakland manager Bob Melvin, who had been in contact with MLB officials since shortly after Wednesday’s game, said he never thought the ruling would be overturned.
