MLB Instant Replay Review 071: Gabe Morales (03)

Instant Replay Review upheld HP Umpire Gabe Morales' HBP call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Cubs-Cardinals game. With none out and one on, Cardinals batter Allen Craig took a 0-1 sinker from Cubs pitcher Jose Veras inside and around the area of the upper left arm for a hit by pitch. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Cubs Manager Rick Renteria, Morales' ruling that the pitched ball made contact with Craig was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Cubs were leading, 3-1. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 6-3, in 11 innings.

This is Gabe Morales (47)'s third Instant Replay Review of 2014.

CCS, I was watching game 1 and 2 of Redsox vs yankees series and saw that for game 3 Brian Gorman is in for Balkin bob Davidson and James Hoye is replaced by Ron Kulpa, so its HP: John Tumpane, 1: Brian O'nora, 2: Ron Kulpa, 3: Brian Gorman instead of John Tumpane Brian onora Bob Davidson, James Hoye. The only thing i can think of is they tell hoye and davison to now be the two umpires to be in the replay center in NY? like what Vanover and Kellogg did in week 1? Unless they are both sick why would you get rid of them in the middle of a series. Maybe is wrong?
