MLB Instant Replay Review 129: Jerry Meals (03)
Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Jerry Meals' out call in the top of the 3rd inning of the Angels-Nationals game. With none out and none on, Angels batter J.B. Shuck hit a 0-1 fastball from Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark on the ground to second baseman Danny Espinoza, who threw to first baseman Adam LaRoche as Shuck arrived at first base via a head-first slide. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, Meals' ruling that LaRoche caught the ball and tagged first base prior to Shuck's touch arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the contest was tied, 0-0. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 4-2.
