Osprey win in bizarre fashion, and it's on video (UPDATE)

The Missoula Osprey won a wild one last night when Helena's Raul Mondesi Jr. forgot to touch home plate on a would-be game-tying two-run home run in the bottom of the 10th. The Osprey appealed, and the ump called Mondesi out, thus ending the game. Missoula won, 2-1.

Sounds crazy, but it happened. Even crazier is that the blooper was caught on video, clear as day. The reactions here — from the initial crowd enthusiasm to the umpire and catcher, who immediately realized Mondesi messed up — are priceless.

UPDATE: The video was removed from YouTube, but Deadspin, which picked up on the story after the Indy's original post, grabbed another version from KRTV. You can watch it here.
