The Miami Marlins got absolutely screwed by the home plate umpire during their game against the Mets.

In the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs and the bases loaded, Marlins relief pitcher Anthony Bass believed the game was going to extra innings after the umpire called a strikeout on batter Michael Conforto.

Unfortunately for Bass, the umpire immediately reversed his decision and called a hit-by-pitch after the ball grazed Conforto’s arm.

During the replay, it was clear that Conforto blatantly leaned into the pitch which is illegal.

Unfortunately, the hit-by-pitch call wasn’t reversed on replay because umps can’t review the lean-in by Conforto.

Conforto didn’t seem to mind the call that went in his favor.

Fans however were furious.
