MLB Instant Replay Review S-32: David Soucy (S-1)

Instant replay reversed 1B Umpire David Soucy's out call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Giants-Rangers game. With one out and one on, Giants batter Juan Perez hit a 1-0 fastball from Rangers pitcher Martin Perez to shortstop Elvis Andrus, who threw to second baseman Brent Lillibridge to retire Giants baserunner R1 Andrew Susac at second base, onto first baseman Prince Fielder as Perez arrived at first base. Upon instant replay review as the result of a challenge by Giants Manager Bruce Bochy, Soucy's ruling that Fielder caught the throw and tagged first base prior to Perez's touch arrival was overturned, the call was incorrect. At the time of the instant replay review, the Giants were leading, 1-0. The contest ultimately ended in a 4-4 tie.
