MLB Instant Replay Review S-35|36: Wolf, L Barrett (S-1|1)
In the 8th, with none out and none on, A's batter Daniel Robertson hit a 1-2 pitch from Rockies pitcher Yohan Flande to second baseman Sam Mende, who threw to first baseman Ryan Wheeler as Robertson arrived at first base. Upon instant replay review as the result of a challenge by A's Manager Bob Melvin, 1B Umpire Barrett's ruling that Wheeler caught the throw and tagged first base prior to Robertson's touch arrival was upheld, the call was correct. At the time of the instant replay review, the A's were leading, 10-5. The A's ultimately won the contest, 10-5.
