Missed call allows Cardinals to come back to tie

(BaseballStL) -- It appears that the St. Louis Cardinals may have gotten away with one in the sixth inning on Tuesday.

With Yadier Molina at the plate and two outs, Carlos Beltran decided to take off from second base in an attempt to steal third base off starter Tyler Skaggs. The throw from catcher Miguel Montero appeared to be in time as third baseman Martin Prado applied the tag for the out, but umpire Jordan Baker called Beltran safe.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson came out to argue the call, but it held up and Yadier Molina then hit a single to right field to score Beltran and trim the lead to one run.

It would mark the end of the day for Skaggs, who allowed five earned runs on six hits in 5.2 innings pitched.

Arizona bench coach Alan Trammell was ejected from the game as Brad Ziegler was warming up on the mound to face David Freese, who singled to extend his hit streak to 14 games. Pinch-hitter Matt Adams struck out with runners on first and second to end the inning.

The blown call would have ended the inning, but it ended up allowing the Cardinals a run to pull within one of the lead. The Cardinals would tie the game in the next inning on an RBI single hit by Beltran.
