I understand that the ball was hit very hard and that it was probably knuckling a little. I also understand that balls hit right at you are very tough to catch. But give me a break here. This is major league baseball. Atkins hit a line drive right at him. He misjudged the depth and then made a feeble attempt to compensate, as the ball glanced off his glove. That is a bad feeling play, an error. And those runs should have been unearned.
Why are official scorers so forgiving when it comes to this stuff?
