MLB denies Phillips' appeal for scoring change
CLEVELAND -- Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips' appeal to Major League Baseball for a scoring change was denied on Wednesday. In the fifth inning of Monday's 10-9 loss to the Indians, Phillips lined a ball down the left-field line that was misplayed by Johnny Damon and led to Phillips scoring on the play.

The official scorer ruled the play an RBI double for Phillips, with an error on Damon. Phillips and the Reds felt he should have been credited with an inside-the-park home run. Phillips lived with the ruling without complaint.

"I'm not mad. I got a hit," Phillips said after being told his appeal was denied. "We just lost. I care about the loss more than anything."
