MLB Instant Replay 043: Mike Muchlinski (01)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Mike Muchlinski's out call in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Diamondbacks-Rockies game. With none out and none on, Rockies batter Charlie Blackmon hit a 1-2 slider from Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley on the ground to first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who threw to Miley as Blackmon (and Miley) arrived at first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Rockies Manager Walt Weiss, Muchlinski's ruling that Miley caught the ball and tagged first base ahead of Blackmon's sliding arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the contest was tied, 0-0. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 5-3.
