This was the scene of a big moment in Game 6 on Friday night.

The Kansas City Royals booked a return trip to the World Series on Friday night with a pressure-packed and briefly rain-delayed 4-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

The game wasn't without its share of controversy, though. With the Royals up 1-0 in the second against David Price, Mike Moustakas cracked a line drive to right-center that a fan caught on the line. The problem, however, arose when it became a question whether the fan interfered with the ball or not...prompting a replay review, which the Royals won.

The Royals may have had a 2-0 lead, but there was much discussion of the original play on social media...with some folks even likening it to the infamous Jeffrey Maier catch in Game 1 of the 1996 ALCS between the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles:

As for Friday's game: some might argue the call, and take issue with MLB's review system awarding Moustakas a home run. However, the Jays also went a dismal 0-12 with runners in scoring position (including having the tying run at third base with nobody out in the ninth inning).

In hindsight, Moustakas' blast and the subsequent fallout was a principle moment in a game that had many.

After the dust settled, the Royals set a date with the New York Mets next Tuesday in Game 1 of the World Series.
