MLB Instant Replay Review 086: Brian Knight (03)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Brian Knight's foul ball call in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Pirates-Reds game. With one out and none on, Reds batter Todd Frazier hit a 0-0 fastball from Pirates pitcher Wandy Rodriguez in the air down the right field line, where it struck right fielder Travis Snider in the face. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Reds Manager Bryan Price, Knight's ruling that Snider initially contacted the ball while it was positioned in foul territory was reversed and BR Frazier was placed at second base, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Pirates were leading, 3-2. The game was suspended with the Pirates ultimately winning, 8-7.

This is Brian Knight (91)'s third Instant Replay Review of 2014.
