I didn’t see the controversy, can you fill in the details?

It was the 13th, runner on 1B with 2 out. Ball is laced to RF and hits the wall, bounced back and hit the RF in the foot which sends it over the wall. By rule its an auto double. Meaning the runner from 1B, who was rounding 3B when the ball hit the wall, wasn't allowed to score. Rays had to stay at a 4-4 tie and lost a few minutes later. 

So by rule, the OF should always just boot the ball over the wall to save a run when the balls in the gap.

Yeah, should be similar to ball going into the dugout.  Runners get current base plus 1 at the time the ball goes out of play.

Kevin Cash can't get out of his own way in the playoffs. Pulling Snell early and now he puts in McClanahan in the 3rd inning on 3 days rest. He hasn't pitched on short rest all season, has never pitched out of the pen and this is his first playoff series. Rays now down 5-0 in a do or die game.

Here's the list of teams with better records than the Giants and the Dodgers since 1955:

2001 Seattle Mariners

1998 New York Yankees

If we take back to 1928, the 1954 Cleveland Indians and 1931 Philadelphia Athletics (!) join the list.

A historically great team is going home after game 5.
