    Definitely looked like he touched 3rd in the video. He was at least close
    enough for the umpires to say, "sorry coach, ballgame." That's a crappy
    way to win and very crappy way to lose such a big game. 4 man crew, why
    appeal to the plate ump? 3rd base ump is right there, 5 feet away from the
    bag, that is his call.

    As an umpire it pains me to say this, but I have a feeling they honestly were not looking if R2 touched 3rd or not. Chances are he didn't.

    Touching 3rd or not touching 3rd is not appealable because it's a judgement call. The only thing that would be appealable is the dicision to call the runner out and thereby not allowing the run. Is that a correct interpretation of the rule? I believe it is a correct interpretation but I would hate to win that way.

    Wrong.

     

    Missing a base is absolutely appealable.  If you call a runner out, what is the reasoning?  Because you appeal that he missed a base.  The runners have the responsibility to run/touch the bases in proper order, failing to do that and the defensive appealing that the runner failed to do that, happens in the form of an appeal.

    I misspoke and used the wrong terminology. It is appealable. They ruled on the appeal at the game. It is not protestable, which is what they are trying to do.
