Altuve's potential homer was wiped away when umpire Joe West ruled that fans reaching for the ball interfered with Boston right fielder Mookie Betts's attempt to make a leaping catch.
If this turns out to cost the Astros the game and even the series, Houston may have their own Steve Bartman-esque scapegoat. "The ball hit me right in the hand".
Now Houston's chances to repeat as World Series champions are almost out of reach after an 8-6 loss Wednesday night that put the Red Sox ahead 3-1 in the best-of-seven matchup. Houston trails Boston, 2-1, in the series.
Justin Verlander, 6-1 in eight postseason games for Houston, including a win in Game 1 of this ALCS, starts Thursday night with the season on the line.
Altuve was up with one out and a runner on first in the bottom of the first inning. However, if it's the fan who reaches over the fence and "plainly" prevents the player from catching the ball, then Major League Baseball rules say the batter should be called out for spectator interference.
"So if a player is IN the stands fans are suppose to move over?" Altuve was ruled out and Springer was sent back to first base.
Altuve had both hands on his helmet in disbelief while standing on second base, where he stopped when the play ended.
Manager AJ Hinch of the Houston Astros talks with umpire Joe West after fan interference was called in the first inning during Game Four of the American League Championship Series between the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park on October 17, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Red Sox outfielder (and likely AL MVP) Mookie Betts leapt high and the ball caromed off his glove. "Jose paid kind of the ultimate price for something out of his control".
Mookie Betts looked like he was about to make one of the best catches in recent playoff memory. Fans made contact with Betts' glove, though it wasn't clear if they had reached over the fence.
That was the basis for the argument made by Caldwell, who said, "I promise you I didn't do anything wrong". Altuve hit a ball deep to right field that appeared to be heading over the wall. Kemp snapped that tie when he homered the next inning.
To Nick Natario of ABC, Caldwell, an Astros fan, said he believed the call should've been designated a home run. They were up 8-5 before Altuve's RBI groundout in the eighth. It was only fitting that Alex Bregman came to the plate and smacked a line drive into left field that was snared on a diving play by Andrew Benintendi.
It didn't look like the Astros fans reached over the wall or intentionally interfered with Betts' catch attempt.
