|Gibson points to the plate as Suzuki argues.|
Though Gibson made a preliminary gesture as if to call Valaika out at the plate, Gibson reversed course and ruled Valaika safe—emphatically crowing, "Safe! Safe!"—ruling Suzuki had failed to tag the runner prior to his touching of home plate. Replays indicate Suzuki's glove may have barely grazed Valaika's helmet just prior to Valaika's hand touching the point of home plate, though other angles camera angles suggest Suzuki missed the tag.
