On Monday night, the New York Yankees faced a 3-1 defeat against the Toronto Blue Jays. Despite initially taking the lead with an RBI single from Oswaldo Cabrera in the second inning, the Yankees soon found themselves trailing.

A bases-loaded walk allowed the Blue Jays to tie the game, followed by a wild pitch that gave them the lead. Alejandro Kirk’s double in the third inning extended Toronto’s lead to two runs, securing their victory as neither team scored again for the remainder of the game.

However, an interesting moment occurred at the top of the fifth inning. With Trent Grisham at-bat for the Yankees, facing a 3-1 count against Blue Jays pitcher Chris Bassit, a fascinating exchange unfolded.

Bassit delivered a precise sinker on the outside corner, which Grisham initially watched go by.

The home plate umpire, Charlie Ramos, correctly called it a strike but mistakenly believed it was strike three instead of strike two.

In a swift move, Ramos rectified his error without hesitation, smoothly transitioning to call it strike two, much to the surprise of viewers.

Unlike typical umpire mistakes that lead to prolonged discussions, Ramos’s quick correction was a refreshing change for fans in attendance.

Despite the setback, the Yankees have an opportunity to bounce back in the second game of their three-game series against the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre tonight.
