"I felt like I held the bag," Murphy said. "I haven't seen a replay yet, so you guys would know better than me. But I felt like I was on the bag and am glad we got the call."
As for Werth's reaction, Murphy said: "I threw the ball back to Frankie there. Once the umpires and the manager start getting into it, and the players, I want to get out of there. That's not my place to go in there and eavesdrop on something like that."
Said Livan Hernandez about the play: "What did I see? He was safe. He beat him two times. He was safe when the guy got off the bag and he was safe because he beat the throw. I think he made a big mistake, the umpire there, because it's not about his foot is off the bag. It's safe because he beat the throw. He was safe two times."
