I’m listening to Gladden, who has called it both a balk and strike three. What was it actually called on the field?

I think the Reds are saying that it's not a balk since Gray stepped off before throwing. That may mean it's not a pitch but rather a throw. I don't know the rule.

4:50 update: 

 

Yankees are trailing 3-0, but Baltimore has taken the lead back from Toronto, so we’re back to: 

 

No. 8 Toronto at No. 1 Tampa Bay

No. 7 Cleveland at No. 2 Minnesota

No. 6 Houston at No. 3 Oakland

No. 5 New York at No. 4 Chicago

yes , the Twins called it and the ump agreed, terrible job by the ump

I wonder if one of the base umpires called it.

I think you’re right, I believe the umps were checking to see if it is reviewable, and I’m guessing it’s not so the balk call stands. The ump blew it though

They might have also decided it was not a reviewable play.

The other question is whether Gray had started a pitching movement before stepping off. If so, it's a balk.

Marwin called it and the home plate ump agreed, glad it was for the Twins but that ump did a terrible job on that

Diggs is having a good season with the unbeaten Bills. Vikings are stuck with Cousins. At least Twins are going to win the division.

This play made Eddie one of my favorites. He timed his bluff exactly perfectly, with the pitcher engaging the rubber but unsettled before working into his stretch. All he needed was to induce a little tiny flinch and he got it.

Indians are behind by 4 runs now. Twins are going to play Indians at home.
