Rangers Vs. Yankees, ALCS Game 4: Tommy Hunter Narrowly Escapes Second Inning At 1-0

Robinson Cano's controversial home run was very nearly not the only home run of the second inning for Tommy Hunter. Lance Berkman came up and ripped a long, high fly ball deep down the right field line for what was initially called a home run. However, the umpires convened and went to replay, and upon viewing the replay, it was evident that the ball disappeared behind the foul pole when seen from a left field perspective. As such, Berkman wound up with nothing but a long foul, having come just a foot away from doubling the Yankees' lead.

Berkman went on to strike out, and it's 1-0 New York going into the third.
