With two outs, Garcia was called for the balk while throwing to first base in an attempt to pick off Angels center fielder Shane Robinson, who was awarded second base. Robinson stole third before Garcia induced Cliff Pennington into an inning-ending groundout.
Snitker explained after the game he argued the call because Garcia had made previous pickoff attempts during the game performing the same motion without penalty, and did not believe it warranted a call.
"He picked off a guy and had three other moves and they weren't balks," said Snitker. "All the sudden, it was a balk. He didn't do anything different, so I'm like, 'Why are you balking him now?' That was my biggest point. We picked Eric [Young Jr.] off. If that wasn't a balk. 'Why is the next move a balk?' was my point."
