In the 9th, with one out and none on, Pirates batter Russell Martin hit a 0-0 changeup from Cubs pitcher Pedro Strop on a line drive to deep left center field towards the top of the outfield wall. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a request by Cubs Manager Renteria and initiation by Crew Chief Jeff Nelson, Barry's ruling that the ball left the playing field in flight for a home run was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Cubs were leading, 7-5. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 7-5.
