MLB Instant Replay Review 141: Larry Vanover (01)
Instant Replay Review overturned HP Umpire Larry Vanover's safe call in the top of the 1st inning of the Rangers-Athletics game. With one out and one on, Rangers batter Prince Fielder hit a 0-2 fastball from A's pitcher Sonny Gray on the ground to shortstop Jed Lowrie, who threw to catcher Derek Norris as Rangers baserunner R3 Alex Rios arrived at home plate. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Athletics Manager Bob Melvin, Vanover's ruling that Norris did not tag Rios prior to Rios' touch arrival at home plate was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Rangers were leading, 2-0.
