ESPN has a little less bias in their reporting, in part:

FULLERTON, Calif. -- Cal State Fullerton coach Dave Serrano called it an unfortunate sequence: a liner that appeared to bounce before it was caught was ruled an out, costing the Titans a run and, ultimately, the game in a 1-0 loss to Stanford at Goodwin Field in the NCAA regionals.

Fullerton would have broken a scoreless tie in the fifth if not for the blown call by third-base umpire Joe Marion. With two outs and Nick Ramirez on second, Greg Velazquez sent a sinking liner to left field that, even from the press box behind the plate, appeared to bounce before Tyler Gaffney got his glove under it. The large crowd groaned in disbelief and Serrano jogged out to dispute what replays later confirmed: Gaffney had, indeed, trapped the ball.

"That's baseball," Serrano said. "We got the misfortune of that call. It was a judgment call. I didn't have the monitors next to me but as far as my eyes could see, I thought the ball hit the ground. But he's the umpire and I'm the coach and his word is final. We had to live with that. You can't blame it on the call, I guess."

After the game, Gaffney wouldn't say if he caught the ball or not.

"I just jumped out there and wished for the best," Gaffney said. "That was the end of the inning."
