App State's Travis Holden Out on Close Call at Home

Appalachian State batter Travis Holden nearly pulled off an inside-the-park home run in the rain during the Mountaineers' game vs Coastal Carolina Friday, but a controversial call after a brief delay upstaged the home team's celebration as the umpire who made the call scurried off the field toward the visiting dugout.

Ump rings up Holden to dash his HR hopes.
Per the official box score, Friday afternoon's crew as assigned by the NCAA Sun Belt Conference featured HP Umpire Craig Mirr, 1B Umpire Jeremy Hayes, 2B Umpire Nathan Huber, and 3B Umpire Gabriel Chavez.

Controversy, all of it.

As for the game itself, Holden's non-inside-the-parker occurred during a terminal rain delay that ultimately resulted in the game's suspension in the bottom of the 6th inning with Coastal Carolina leading, 7-4.
