The White Sox won't have to awkwardly go back and essentially re-play Friday's game against the Angels, reports Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. Few, if any, really expected Mike Scioscia's protest to be considered by Major League Baseball, since it was based off a judgment call by home plate umpire Dana DeMuth.
"I get what Scioscia is trying to say," Robin Ventura said Saturday. "But I dont see it affecting what happened on the play. Iannetta yanked it."
Ventura added that he would be surprised if the protest was upheld, although Scioscia believed there was a "clear case in our favor."
The last protest to be successful came in 1986.
