Tennessee baseball fans angry with umpires’ calls in loss to LSU at College World Series

Tennessee baseball fans were not happy about the Vols dropping their opener of the College World Series on Saturday against LSU, but maybe even more by the calls of the umpire crew.

One of the least favorite calls of the game at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Nebraska, was an outside third strike from LSU right-hander Paul Skenes, where many fans believed that it should have been a ball.

Along with third baseman Zane Denton not being happy with the call, fans in the stadium were booing and others took to Twitter to talk about what they believed was a poor performance by the umpire crew.

Not only were calls at the plate angering fans, but the first base umpire stirred up some reactions, too.

During two reviews initiated by Tennessee, one was overturned at first to keep a rally alive in what was an obvious safe play at first base in the eighth for Jared Dickey.

Other than bad calls from umpires, many Vols fans considered it to be a tough but good match for the Vols.

Some took to Twitter to try to give a little confidence boost to the Vols.

Now, UT will have to seek redemption on Monday against Stanford (2 p.m., ESPN) and avoid elimination.
