MLB Instant Replay Review 034: Joe West (01)

Instant Replay Review upheld HP Umpire Joe West's out call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Giants-Dodgers game. With two out and three on, Dodgers batter Andre Ethier hit a 2-2 fastball from Giants pitcher Santiago Casilla on a line drive to right fielder Hunter Pence, who threw to catcher Buster Posey as Dodgers baserunner R2 A.J. Ellis arrived at home plate. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly, West's ruling that Posey successfully tagged Ellis while Ellis was off his base was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Giants were leading, 7-2. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 7-2.
