MLB Instant Replay Review 002: Greg Gibson (01)

Instant replay reversed 1B Umpire Greg Gibson's safe call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Braves-Brewers game. With none out and none on, Brewers batter Ryan Braun hit a 0-1 changeup from Braves pitcher Julio Teheran to third baseman Chris Johnson, who threw to first baseman Freddie Freeman as Braun arrived at first base. Upon instant replay review as the result of a challenge by Braves Manager Fredi Gonzalez, Gibson's ruling that Freeman did not catch the ball and tag first base prior to Braun's touch arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the review, the Brewers were leading, 2-0. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 2-0.

This is Greg Gibson (53)'s first instant replay challenge/review of 2014.
