It's the top of the first inning in Pittsburgh and the Marlins have loaded the bases with Hanley Ramirez on third, Dan Uggla on second, and Miguel Cabrera on first. Josh Willingham is at bat against Tom Gorzelanny. However, on the batting order turned in it at the beginning of the game, Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez wrote in the name of Joe Borchard in the cleanup spot. Willingham should be batting fifth.
Ramirez notices Gorzelanny winding up and breaks for home. He easily beats the pitch home as Pirates catcher Ronny Paulino stands dumbfounded. Gorzelanny is rattled and he balks and Uggla and Cabrera move up to second and third.
Gorzelanny is still flummoxed and he throws a wild pitch and Uggla chugs home. Paulino tries to throw to Gorzelanny at the plate, but the throw deflects off of Gorzelanny's gloves and rolls away toward the dugout. By the time the ball is chased down, Cabrera scores.
By this time, Gorzelanny wants to give up and he hangs a curve for Willingham who clobbers it over the fence.
Aha! But now Pirates skipper Jim Tracy comes out and notices that Willingham was the improper batter. It should have been Borchard. Tracy appeals before Borchard comes to bat.
The few thousand people at PNC Park and a few hundred compulsive gamblers are waiting on the umpire's call. What do you rule?
