2012 NL Wild Card Game
With the Braves trailing 6-3 in the eighth inning of the 2012 NL Wild Card Game against the Cardinals, umpire Sam Holbrook signaled an infield fly ball after a Braves' popup dropped between Cardinals' shortstop Pete Kozma and left fielder Matt Holliday. Andrelton Simmons was called out instead of the Braves' having the bases loaded with only a single out. The game was temporarily delayed after Atlanta fans began pelting the field with bottles and trash while the umpires conferred. The Cardinals emerged victorious with a 6-3 victory that was played under protest.
