Controversial call helps Giants top White Sox, 7-1
In the seventh inning, Chicago first baseman Jose Abreu fielded Joe Panik's broken-bat grounder to easily throw out Blanco for the second out. Giants manager Bruce Bochy challenged the play, and umpires ruled Flowers' left leg was illegally blocking the plate before the ball arrived.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura argued the call and was immediately ejected, setting off an epic protest in which he repeatedly kicked dirt on the plate.
San Francisco snapped a five-game losing streak behind Jake Peavy.
Jose Quintana took the loss.
