The outage happened in the middle of the fourth inning, and Fox said it was caused by their broadcast truck in Kansas City losing power. A screen appeared saying “we are experiencing technical difficulties, please stand by.” And stand by fans did.

The network was apologetic:

Google Fiber was suitably chastened, too:

Viewers missed Kendrys Morales striking out. When the broadcast resumed, MLB official Joe Torre was seen on the field speaking with umpires and managers of the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals.

After a short delay, Fox brought in the MLB Network’s feed which had been used as the international feed.
