During the first inning of Sunday's game, cameras appeared to show a foreign substance on Rogers' hand. After the first inning, it appeared Rogers had washed off whatever was on his hand, whether it was dirt, pine tar or something else. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa refused to comment during an in-game interview with Fox, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland said he wasn't aware of any substance during his in-game interview.
So what's your take, SportsNation? Do you think there was anything nefarious about the mystery substance? And with Rogers continuing to pitch brilliantly after the incident, where does his performance rank against some of the all-time best postseason pitching efforts? Sound off on the World Series!
