Orioles manager Buck Showalter ran onto the field and asked for the umpires to review the play. Upon further review it became clear that the ball struck Smoak on his leg before bouncing away from the catcher. Per Major League Baseball rules, the hit-by-pitch following a swinging strike three meant the ball was dead, the batter out, and the inning over.
Smoak was charged with a swinging strikeout and the game went to the bottom of the seventh with the score still tied at 3.
