MLB Instant Replay Reviews 023, 024:* Barber, Gonzalez
In the 12th, with none out and none on, A's batter Coco Crisp hit a 0-1 fastball from Mariners pitcher Hector Noesi on the fly to deep right-center field for a home run. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a request by Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon and initiation by Crew Chief Fieldin Culbreth, Gonzalez's ruling that Crisp's drive hit dead ball territory above and beyond the outfield wall before bouncing back onto the playing field, thus rendering Crip's fly a home run, was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Athletics had won the ballgame, 3-2, in 12 innings.
