Watching the replay it looked to me like Harris got his hand in their on time. As far as whether it was a balk or not, I can't really tell, that isn't my area of expertise.

Nah, he was picked off, it was just a balk. Heck, Petis knew so and told the ump in a less than polite way, so he was ejected.

i can guarantee that if i would have done a pickoff move like that when i pitched in high school, it would have been called a balk, because it was. ump just fell asleep for a sec i guess.

As I was happily driving back home from the Humpdome, listening to the postgame show, Tom Kelly was asked if he had seen the replay of the pickoff. He said yes. He was asked what he thought. He replied "well, it was a balk, but sometimes you get away with one."

By the way, my seats were directly up from first base, and as far as whether the tag was in time, it was.

Harris knew that he was clearly tagged out and he didn't balk at the call. :o:
