Long after the 2017 NLDS is over, Game 5 may be remembered for a missed call that swung the game in favor of the Chicago Cubs . CONTROVERSY: Baez reaches on strikeout /passed ball. As mentioned above, this was the biggest play of the inning.

Intentional or not, Javier Baez's backswing has sparked quite a bit of controversy in an already intense NLDS Game 5. © Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Intentional or not, Javier Baez's backswing has sparked quite a bit of controversy in an already intense NLDS Game 5.

The Chicago Cubs turned around Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday night against the Washington Nationals with a four-run inning in the fifth that was aided by a blown call.

Max Scherzer came in to pitch the top of the fifth for Washington with his team leading 4-3. He got two outs and then allowed an infield single, single, and then a 2-run double to give Chicago a 5-4 lead. After falling behind Jason Heyward, Scherzer intentionally walked him to bring up Javy Baez with runners on first and second with two out. That’s where things got really weird.

Ump Admits He Was 'Dead Wrong' On Overturned Call

  Ump Admits He Was 'Dead Wrong' On Overturned Call The home plate umpire in Game 4 of the NLCS admiited it was a mistake to overturn a call that led to Chicago Cubs manager Joe Madden getting ejected for the second time in the series. In the top of the eighth inning, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Curtis Granderson swung at a pitch from Cubs reliever Wade Davis that ended up bouncing in front of catcher Willson Contreras. After umpired Jim Wolf said Granderson was out, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts came out to protest that Granderson made contact with the ball, but television replays appeared to show otherwise. Following a conference with the other umpires, the call was reversed and Maddon came out to argue, but ended up getting tossed. Granderson struck out on the very next pitch and the Cubs went on to win the game 3–2 cutting the Dodgers' series lead to three games to one. "After looking at it, I was dead wrong," Wolf said after the game. "I talked myself into the whole thing." Granderson insisted that the ball hit his bat. "It hit the ground the same time as the mitt," Wolf said. "After hearing that, then I [recalled hearing] two distinct, separate sounds. And after hearing that from the crew, that the ball did not bounce -- it did hit the ground, but it did not bounce -- I basically talked myself into, 'He did foul tip it.'" "With all due respect, under those circumstances, that can't happen. It can't happen," Maddon said. "If Granderson hits the next pitch out of the ballpark, that can't happen. The process was not good." Game 5 of the series is Thursday night.

Baez struck out, but he reached on a dropped third strike/passed ball. As if that weren’t bad enough for Washington, Matt Wieters threw the passed ball into right field, allowing another run to score to make it 6-4. A catcher’s interference and hit by pitch allowed another run to score to make it 7-4.

The issue is that on the pitch where he struck out, Baez hit Wieters with his backswing.

MLB rules say that the ball should have been ruled dead and no runners should have advanced due to Baez’s interference.

If no runners should have advanced and the ball should have been dead, it seems like Baez should have been out for striking out and the inning would have ended with the score 5-4. Instead, two more runs scored.
