The obstruction call in game three of the World Series was a rallying point for Red Sox fans watching game four Sunday night. 

"This was an unfair call, you know if it was in Boston they wouldn't have called it, I don't think so," said Jesus Tapia, Cranston.  

"I think it gets everyone fired up.  I mean no one wants to be down in a series.  We feel we should be up," said Lyle Miller, Red Sox fan. 

The Red Sox lost game three to St. Louis after Will Middlebrooks was called for obstruction.  It gave Allen Craig a chance to score the winning run.  

Some fans watching the game at Dave's Bar and Grill in Warwick don't agree with the call. 

"Middlebrooks was in between 2nd and 3rd not blocking the third base line," said Anthony Viveiros, West Warwick. 

It's no surprise Keegan McCullen and his family from St. Louis liked the call.

"It's a tough way to loose.  I wouldn't want to loose on that, it's a good way to win, but tough way to loose," said McCullen. 

Either way the call had some fans keeping an extra eye on the umpires during Sunday's game.
