MLB Instant Replay Review 064: Seth Buckminster (02)

Instant Replay Review confirmed 2B Umpire Seth Buckminster's safe call in the top of the 9th inning of the Angels-Mariners game. With one out and one on, Angels baserunner R1 Kole Calhoun attempted to steal second base off a pickoff throw by Marlins pitcher Charlie Furbush to first baseman Justin Smoak to shortstop Brad Miller as Calhoun arrived at second. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon, Buckminster's ruling that Miller did not tag Calhoun while he was off his base was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Angels were leading, 2-0. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 2-0.

This is Seth Buckminster (67)'s second Instant Replay Review of 2014.

I hope the replay guys says things on those headsets like "That's a great effing call, Seth!"

Gil Imber said...

That was really a great call. Seth must have some kind of super human vision to see this.... Or just got lucky.. wow.

Gil Imber said...

Really ballzy call. Great call!

Gil Imber said...

How many ejections do you think this would have ended up with if there wasn't replay?

Gil Imber said...

I think just McClendon.
