Jose Altuve was robbed on Wednesday night.

That's the verdict from the wives and family members of the Houston Astros after a controversial ruling that denied the team a 2-run homer in the first inning of Game 4.

As the Red Sox's Mookie Betts went to rob Altuve of a home run, his glove hit a fan's hand. The ball first touched a fan, so naturally, one would believe it was a home run.

Model and actress Kate Upton, wife to pitcher Justin Verlander, got deep into MLB rules with Justin's younger brother, Ben, on Twitter.



The wives of Altuve and Marwin Gonzalez turned to Instagram Stories to protest the umpire's call.

"Send the police, because Jose was robbed," wrote Noel Gonzalez.

Nina Altuve was left speechless, posting just three facepalm emojis.
