Ryan "feeling awful" over Saturday night's error

Whether or not Brendan Ryan's error in last night's loss to the Brewers actually affected the game's outcome is up for debate.

The bobble, which took place with two outs and nobody on in the bottom of third, aloud Milwaukee SS Jean Segura to reach first, setting up a two-run home run from Jonathan Lucroy and a solo home run from Aramis Ramirez.

At that point, the Crew led 4-2, with all three of those trips around the bases charged to CC Sabathia as unearned. 

It looks like Ryan agrees with that ruling. 

"It just rips your heart out," #17 told ESPN New York's Wallace Matthews. "CC was starting to cruise there for a minute, and then the next thing you know, it costs you three [runs]. It feels pretty awful. Big difference in the game. We rallied, but take those three runs away, we probably didn’t need to." 

That part about Sabathia cruising is actually true, as the big man had retired six in a row, but overall, those two home runs are still on him. The error wasn't a dropped fly ball with runners in scoring position, it was a missed grounder with two outs and nobody on. They're completely different.
