MLB Instant Replay Review 135: Adrian Johnson (03)
Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Adrian Johnson's safe call in the top of the 7th inning of the Rangers-Athletics game. With none out and none on, Rangers batter Shin-Soo Choo hit a 2-2 fastball from Athletics pitcher Fernando Abad on the ground to Abad, deflected to Josh Donaldson, who threw to first baseman Daric Barton as Choo arrived at first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by A's Manager Bob Melvin, Johnson's ruling that Barton did not catch the ball and tag first base prior to Choo's touch arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the contest was tied, 3-3. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 4-3.
