"I will let David know when I get out there today," Washington said. "I know he was begging for a hit."
Ortiz said Friday night that "under the rules of baseball" he should have been awarded a single because the ball fell untouched. The game's official scorer, Steve Weller, used his discretion under Rule 10.12 to rule it an error. Odor, who was playing in a shift, backpedaled and seemed to settle under the ball. Rios came in as well, didn't call off Odor and backed off, resulting in the baseball hitting the ground.
"That ball off his bat was an out,'' Washington said.
