TORONTO -- Granted, the Yankees were trailing 7-1 when CB Bucknor totally missed a force out call at second in the seventh. It was clear on first sight and on replays that Jayson Nix beat Kelly Johnson to second.

If the call was safe, the Yankees would have had the bases loaded with Nick Swisher due up. Instead, Swisher struck out to end the inning with two on.

Joe Girardi argued, but Bucknor didn't change his mind.

"He said he was out," Girardi said.

Have you seen it?

"Oh, yeah," Girardi said.

"He wasn't," another reporter said.

"I realize that," Girardi said.

Girardi went on, "That is a big play. We have the bases loaded and one-out with two, three, four coming up."
