Adrian Gonzalez insisted he was safe after a controversial call that he and the Los Angeles Dodgers thought swung Game 4 of the NLCS towards the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night.
"I knew I was safe,'' Gonzalez said. "We've got plenty of still frames that prove I was safe. Unfortunately, it turned into a trial, and they said there was not enough evidence.''
Gonzalez was called out at home to end the second inning while trying to score from second base on a single by Andrew Toles. A sliding Gonzalez stretched his left hand toward the tip of the plate as Willson Contreras applied the tag with his left hand near Gonzalez's upper left arm.
"It completely changes his way of pitching," Gonzalez said. "Now he gets one guy on base and he's trying not to let that one run score, where if we've got that lead, he feels more comfortable. He attacks it a bit more. It changes everything. One little thing can change the outcome."
Gonzalez tweeted out a photo that appeared to show him as safe. He added the caption, "Somehow this is an out. #NLCS Takeseries lead tomorrow! Got to do this. Us against the world."
