Tracy still upset about balk call on Sunday

WASHINGTON (AP) - A day later, Rockies manager Jim Tracy is still steamed about a balk call during the ninth inning of a loss to the Braves and what he believes is a "misinterpretation" of
reliever Franklin Morales' pickoff move.

Tracy says Monday that the Rockies sent footage of Morales to Major League Baseball's New York office during spring training after another balk ruling - but they're still waiting for a
"clarification."

The manager says each umpire interprets the balk rule differently because it's not "clear-cut, black-and-white."

In Colorado's 4-3 loss to Atlanta on Sunday, one umpire initially called a balk on fill-in closer Morales, then rescinded the call. Later, another balk call against Morales stood.
