Jose Reyes Never Felt Tag by A-Rod on play at 3B

Jose Reyes told NY Daily News Reporter Anthony Mccarron that he never felt a tag and A-Rod  played it coy by saying, "I think I just touched a little bit of his sleeve" before later admitting, "Whether I did or not, you guys had a better view than I did."

The sweep of a phantom tag at third base in the seventh inning, the only thing that matters is that Reyes was called out.

Terry Collins was ejected in the heated argument that followed with plate umpire Jerry Layne and the Mets never really had a chance after the play, despite trailing by only two runs at the time.

"We were losing, 3-1, man on third base, less than two out, maybe we score that run and it's a different ball game," Reyes said.

"That's a huge out," Rodriguez said. "A big momentum-changer for us. A big play."
