Phils file protest from Sunday game in Florida

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies began play Monday with a 7 1/2-game lead in the National League East. They basically held a 16-game lead in the race to make the playoffs.

In the 26 days remaining in the regular season, the Phillies have 28 games left to play.

There's no time to replay Sunday's disputed game in Florida, and no need to play it.

And yet, the Phillies have filed a formal protest of the game, saying that umpire Joe West erred in using video replay to call Hunter Pence out because of fan interference on a play in the sixth inning. Pence lost a double on the overturned call, and the Phillies eventually lost the game to the Marlins, 5-4 in 14 innings.

"I think we're just trying to do what we think is right," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Monday.

It's really not clear what is right. Replay is only allowed if the umpires have a question of whether a ball left the park for a home run, or whether a ball would have been a home run if not for fan interference.

The Phillies contend that Pence's ball was never going to be, and was never ruled as, a home run.

It seems unlikely that the Phillies' protest would be upheld, but even if it is, it seems unlikely that the game would be replayed. The Phillies and Marlins are scheduled to meet on Sept. 15, but that is already a doubleheader to make up games lost to Hurricane Irene.

The Phillies have no scheduled off-days, and unless they somehow lost the 16-game advantage on the Cardinals (who began Monday second in the wild-card race), there would be no reason to complete the game in Florida.
