“Umpire John Rice hollers at Blue Moon Odom during the sixth inning, moments after the Boston Red Sox scored two runs to take a 5-2 lead against the A’s. The bases were full with one out when Jim Lonborg singled. The second runner home, Reggie Smith, was in on a close play. Odom, backing up catcher Dave Duncan, expressed his displeasure at the call. Rice responded.”
