One game of the 2011 season sticks out to Pittsburgh Pirates fans.
The Pirates lost 4-3 to the Atlanta Braves in a game which started on July 26 and didn’t end until the early morning hours of July 27 when a missed call at home plate allowed the winning run to score for the Braves.
MLB later acknowledged the call was missed by home plate umpire Jerry Meals.
Daniel McCutchen ended up being the losing pitcher that night but only after he pitched 5 1-3 innings and allowed just that one run at the end of the game. He said the atmosphere itself was a fun one.
