Series tied, 1-1
But Bobby Cox came to the rescue, via another questionable call by umpire, Paul Emmel. The same Emmel who called rookie catcher Buster Posey safe at second base in Game 1 on a stolen base attempt. Posey, who was clearly out by a mile, would eventually score the game's only run.
It appeared as if Cox was arguing Emmel's Game 1 blunder coupled with Game 2's blunder. Of course, Emmel proceeded to eject Cox from the game. Cox holds the major league record for ejections with 158 during the regular-season. He has now been tossed from 3 playoff games also in his career.
But give an assist to Cox.
The one thing Cox could never be accused of, is not protecting his team and his players.
The old-timer deserves a lot of credit.
