Did Dustin Pedroia tag out Juan Pierre?

The Red Sox caught White Sox outfielder Juan Pierre in a rundown in the fifth inning of today’s game, and Globe photographer Barry Chin caught the play with his camera.

Umpire Marty Foster ruled Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia missed the tag and Pierre was safe at second, which prompted protests from Pedroia and Red Sox manager Terry Francona. One of four frames Chin shot appears in full above, and we’ve made a three-frame sequence out of the play below. Video replays were difficult to interpret because none had a decisive angle on the play.

What do you think? The play was certainly meaningful because Pierre would have been the second out. Instead, the White Sox went on to score two runs.
