This is irrelevant. Whether or not the call was correct is the only issue. I do not even think that anyone has suggested it was the sole reason the Braves lost. That Kozma made what was potentially as bad a play that could have opened the door as Jones' error didn't become a story because the ump bailed him out with a crap call.
