After getting the ankle retaped, Wagner returned in the second quarter, before being ruled out at halftime.

Houston reliever Ken Giles allowed three consecutive singles with nobody out in the ninth as the A’s pulled to 4-1. The television broadcast appeared to show Giles cursing at manager AJ Hinch as he was lifted. Hinch was asked about the outburst by Giles, who earlier this season punched himself in the face as he left the mound following another bad outing.

That stuff happens in the heat of battle, Hinch said. I’ll have to look at it. He can let me know if it was directed at me; I didn’t hear anything. And you can certainly understand that I’ll address it if it turns out it was at me.

It’s a stunningly candid assessment, and a somewhat tactful was of saying, Don’t blame us. And it has indeed been the excruciating, frame-by-frame application of replay review that has supplanted know-it-when-you-see-it common sense with a micromanaging of decisions made in real time.

People just didn’t understand that you had to hold on to the ball going to the ground, Coleman said of the former rule. When you catch the ball and you reach out, everybody thought that should be a catch. The way the rule was written, it wasn’t.

It’s not that people didn’t understand the prior rule. It’s that people thought the prior rule conflicted with common sense. The new rule doesn’t, if it’s applied in a common-sensical way.
