MLB Instant Replay Review 160: Paul Emmel (01)
Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Paul Emmel's safe call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Athletics-Astros game. With two out and none on, A's batter Coco Crisp hit a 3-1 fastball from Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel on the ground to first baseman Marc Krauss, who threw to Keuchel, covering, as Crisp arrived at first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Astros Manager Bo Porter, Emmel's ruling that Keuchel did not catch the ball and tag first base prior to Crisp's touch arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Astros were leading, 3-2. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 7-6.
