I noticed right away that he did not call it a strike, but was motioning that it was inside. He has a very loud and distinct strike call, both verbal and hand signal, which he did not do. I think the hand motion is what confused everyone to think he called it a strike, which it was, he missed the pitch. Having followed the team for so long, I thought for sure the collapse was coming for sure after that, we'd lose the game, and go 1-5 on the road trip
