MLB Instant Replay Review 104: Tripp Gibson (01)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Tripp Gibson's safe call in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the Royals-Astros game. With two out and none on, Astros batter Alex Presley hit a 2-1 fastball from Royals pitcher James Shields on the ground to second baseman Omar Infante, who threw to first baseman Eric Hosmer as Presley arrived at first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Royals Manager Ned Yost, Gibson's ruling that Hosmer did not catch the ball and tag first base prior to Presley's touch arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Royals were leading, 2-0. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 5-1.
