Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell was blunt in his postgame assessment of the umpiring during Monday's loss to the Houston Astros.

"It's two awful calls. I have to say it," Counsell said, according to Adam McCalvy of "It's the magnitude of the spot; it's the hitter. It's bad calls. It's bad umpiring."

Milwaukee had the tying and winning runs on base when Christian Yelich stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 10th inning.

The reigning National League MVP took a 1-2 pitch that appeared to be high, but he was rung up by home plate umpire Ben May. It was the second time in the game that he was called out looking on a pitch above the strike zone.
