Mariners broadcast disgusted with strike three call to end game

“Well, this guy’s headed to the Hall of Fame and sometimes you catch a break. This ball looks inside to me Al and a very generous call from umpire Jerry Layne. Mmm, very generous.”

Certainly not the worst call we’ve seen this year but egregious all the same.
