SEATTLE — The Yankees were informed by MLB that plate umpire Gabe Morales shouldn’t have granted the Dodgers time in the ninth inning of last Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Dodger Stadium.
That call likely cost the Yankees a run.
Manager Aaron Boone was told Morales should not have stopped the play with Gleyber Torres on his way home while Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy was laying on the ground with the ball after Brett Gardner cut his legs out on a slide.
“It shouldn’t have been called,’’ Boone said before the Yankees’ 7-0 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night.
Boone said he has moved on from the incident.
