CLEVELAND -- Major League Baseball said the umpires were wrong. The Athletics knew that all along. "We saw what we saw last night," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. One day after umpire Angel Hernandez and his crew failed to reverse an obvious game-tying home run by As infielder Adam Rosales in the ninth inning following a video review, MLB executive vice-president Joe Torre said an "improper call" was made in Wednesdays game between the Indians and Athletics. However, despite pointing out the critical error, Torre said the "judgment" call will stand. The Indians won 4-3, and went on to sweep the four-game series with a 9-2 victory over the As on Thursday. Melvin, who had been in contact with MLB officials since shortly after Wednesdays game, said he never thought the ruling would be overturned. "No, I didnt think there was any chance at that," he said, "because thered been calls before that have been missed and nothings happened because of it." Few, though, seemed as egregious as this error. The As were already down by six runs in the series finale when Torres statement was released. In it, the former Yankees manager made it clear the umpires had blown the call. "By rule, the decision to reverse a call by use of instant replay is at the sole discretion of the crew chief," Torre said. "In the opinion of Angel Hernandez, who was last nights crew chief, there was not clear and convincing evidence to overturn the decision on the field. It was a judgment call, and as such, it stands as final. "Home and away broadcast feeds are available for all uses of instant replay, and they were available to the crew last night. Given what we saw, we recognize that an improper call was made. Perfection is an impossible standard in any endeavour, but our goal is always to get the calls right. Earlier this morning, we began the process of speaking with the crew to thoroughly review all the circumstances surrounding last nights decision." Before MLBs ruling, Melvin said he still believed he witnessed a home run and nothing will ever change his mind. The stunning decision not to reverse the call was the talk of the sports world with everyone seeming to agree the As had been wronged. Retired Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones didnt mince words with his take on the umpires blown call. "What good is instant replay if u dont have umpires who interpret it correctly?" Jones wrote on Twitter. "Some course of action has to be taken w/ umps. Even worse than that, there were 2 other umpires looking at it with him. What the hell were they lookin at?? Musta been "get away day"! In New York, Mets manager Terry Collins said that human error is part of the game. "Once in a while were going to make a mistake. I will always defend that," he said. "Pretty soon this game is going to be played by robots and well all be watching it." With two outs, Rosales sent a drive to left that appeared to easily clear the 19-foot-high outfield wall and strike a metal railing. Melvin asked Hernandez and his crew to review the hit, and three umpires left the field to view replays in a designated area near their dressing room. After a lengthy delay, the umpires returned and instructed Rosales, who was set to sprint home, to stay at second, a decision that shocked him the As, the Indians, 14,000 fans in attendance at Progressive Field and people watching on television. Following Thursdays game, Rosales shrugged when he was told about Torres ruling. "Thats the final decision," he said. "I mean, theres nothing else you can do about it. Once it happened, it happened. Its over, that was yesterday. Just got to move on from it and continue forward." Bartolo Colon (3-2) was tagged for three homers in four innings by the Indians, who swept a four-game set from the As for the first time since 1999. "He didnt look awful," Melvin said. "The velocity was there, the balls he got in the middle of the plate they hit and they did it the whole series. So, sometimes the other team just beats you and today that was the case. We had a couple chances early on, and we didnt come through. "And every time they had an opportunity, they did." Melvin brought his lineup card to home plate before Thursdays game for his first face-to-face meeting with Hernandez and his crew since the disputed ruling. Melvin was cordial and returned to the dugout after having joked earlier he hoped he wouldnt get ejected. Did he say anything to the umps? "Nope," he said. "Just Hi. Thats fine by me." Randy Marsh, MLBs director of umpires, attended Thursdays game. Marsh did not comment specifically on the disputed play, but was sent to Cleveland to speak with the umpires and make sure the replay equipment was functioning properly. Marsh said everything appeared to be in order. For the As, their four days in Cleveland couldnt have gone much worse. Oakland came to town after winning two of three against the Yankees, but the majors top-scoring team managed just eight runs in four games against the Indians. "Theyre playing great, cant do anything wrong," Melvin said. "And were struggling. Thats what happened. What happened last night shouldnt affect today. They just beat us." NOTES: Josh Donaldson homered in the sixth inning for the As. ... Oakland continues its 10-game trip on Friday in Seattle with the opener of a three-game series. ... Melvin said Jarrod Parker (sore neck) will make his scheduled start on Saturday against the Mariners. ... Oakland pitchers have given up 22 homers in the past 12 games after allowing 20 over the first 24. .... The As are 6-14 since opening the season 12-4.

Right now we are trying to find strengths, roles and cohesion, and we are playing very quality opponents to help figure that out.The Eagles opened the season with a 70-47 victory over Linfield on Nov. 11.
