Quote of the Day: Wainwright's perspective on Game 3 ending

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Adam Wainwright was admittedly lost several times during the final play of Game 3.

ST. LOUIS - As is customary, the starting pitchers of the following World Series game were in press conferences prior to Game 4 Sunday. During Cardinals Game 5 starter Adam Wainwright's presser, he was asked about his reaction to the wild conclusion to Game 3. And it was at least mildly amusing. So while we sit and wait on the beginning of Game 4, let's enjoy it:

"I didn't see [Jarrod Saltalamacchia] throw it away. I saw [Dustin] Pedroia make the great play, throw it home and got Yadier [Molina] out," Wainwright said. "I thought that was the end of it, so I turned my back."

"All of a sudden people started running out on the field and so -- I didn't know what happened -- but I was running out on the field, too. And I got about halfway there and saw Craig out by a couple of feet. I started tiptoeing backward toward the dugout and [umpire Dana DeMuth] called him safe. I thought, 'wow, I think I've just witnessed the worst call in the history of the game at home plate,' (to great laughter in the interview room) only to find out there was obstruction."

"So there were four or five times I didn't know what the heck was going on."

Can you imagine if no obstruction were called and the umpire actually did call him out? That would have been Frank Drebin-level bad:
