Sport Umpire Dan Bellino makes worst ball call of the century against Adam Cimber
Research: India's deaths during pandemic 10X official toll
NEW DELHI (AP) — India's excess deaths during the pandemic could be a staggering 10 times the official COVID-19 toll, likely making it modern India’s worst human tragedy, according to the most comprehensive research yet on the ravages of the virus in the south Asian country. Most experts believe India's official toll of more than 414,000 dead is a vast undercount, but the government has dismissed those concerns as exaggerated and misleading.

If you think electronic strike zones are the future of baseball, have we got a clip for you.
During Monday's game between theand Indians, home plate umpire Dan Bellino made a great case for taking the human error out of the game.
Reliever Adam Cimber took the mound in the seventh inning and sent an off-speed pitch towards Ernie Clement.
Cimber threw a strike, but Bellino made undoubtedly the worst called ball of the century instead.
The call was so bad, even a Cleveland broadcaster called out the ump.
Automated strike zones have their downsides, but that kind of horrendous miss wouldn't happen. Let the debates rage.
Dan Bellino made a terrible call with Adam Cimber on the mound
Cimber got Clement out on the next pitch when he flied out to center. The reliever gave up a double but took down the next two batters to get out of the inning with the game still tied at 2-2.
While he had to deal with that questionable call, things have gone Cimber's way, for the most part, this season. He was traded from the Marlins to the Blue Jays at the end of June and has fit in perfectly with his new team. In 12 appearances, he's given up just one run. His ERA is 0.79 over the last month with Toronto.
Jays lose on a walk-off walk .
Blue Jays 2 Mariners 3 Baseball is a terrible thing. We got yet another good start from Robbie Ray. Before the game, they were talking about his Cy Young chances and this start doesn’t hurt them. 7 innings, 5 hits, 2 earned, 1 walk, and 8 strikeouts. He had a bad moment in the third inning, giving up a leadoff double and a Tom Murphy home run. Those were the only extra-base hits he’d allow. He came out of the game at 90 pitched. Perhaps could have gone one more, but I’d have expected that he would come out with the first base runner, so it is likely best to let Trevor Richards start with a clean slate.
