The Atlanta Braves fans littered the field with trash after umpire Sam Holbrook called an infield fly on a ball that went into left field.
Had an infield fly not been called the Braves would have had the bases loaded with one out. Instead the out forced the situation to two on and two out.
Tom Verducci says that Cardinal players were forced to dodge debris to exit the field. Braves manager Freddi Gonzalez filed a protest with the home plate umpire. When the Cardinals retook the field the fans threw debris at them again.
MLB said the call is under protest.
