Source: MLB questions ump's game-ending call

The Baltimore Orioles held on to beat the White Sox last night 8-6 with the game ending on a controversial runner interference call. The crew chief said the umpire had no choice but to make the call; however, MLB says that may not be the case.

With two on and one out in the bottom of the ninth, Andrew Benintendi popped up. Shortstop Gunnar Henderson caught the ball -- umpires had called the infield fly rule anyway -- for the second out, then third-base umpire Junior Valentine ruled that Andrew Vaughn interfered with Henderson on the play.
