Questionable Angel Hernandez calls hurt Giants in Game 2 loss


The Giants fell to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2 in Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday night. They were beaten in all facets of the game, as the Dodgers tied the series at one apiece.

For what was a close 2-1 game through five innings, the Dodgers broke it open in the sixth and didn't look back. Before that, though, a few questionable calls from home plate umpire Angel Hernandez made the Giants' -- and the Dodgers' -- job a little bit harder early on at Oracle Park.

The Giants have nobody to blame but themselves, but some of these questionable calls certainly didn't help San Francisco put together early at-bats.

Hernandez has a reputation as one of the more frustrating umpires to play in front of, and that was on display Saturday night.
