MLB Replay Reviews 165, 166: Scheurwater, Nauert (01, 01)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Stu Scheurwater's safe call in the top of the 3rd and confirmed HP Umpire Paul Nauert's run cancellation (time play; third out) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Rockies-Dodgers game. In the 3rd, with two out and one on, Dodgers pitcher Paul Maholm attempted to pick off Rockies baserunner R1 Brandon Barnes on the glove tag by Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly, Scheurwater's ruling that Gonzalez did not tag Barnes while he was off his base was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Rockies were leading, 1-0.

In the 8th, with one out and two on, Dodgers batter Juan Uribe hit a 0-1 fastball from Rockies pitcher Matt Belisle on the fly to right fielder Barnes, who threw to third baseman Nolan Arenado, Dodgers baserunner R2 Yasiel Puig out at third base as R3 Dee Gordon arrived at home plate. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Dodgers Manager Mattingly, Nauert's ruling that Puig was retired at third base for the third out of the inning prior to Gordon's touch of home plate was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Dodgers were leading, 6-2. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 6-3.

Challenge. I disagree that ball 1 being called incorrectly did not have an impact on the at bat. If it had been called correctly than Carp would have struck out swinging on pitch number 4. That is a different result than a walk.

Seth Buckminster ejected Daniel Murphy for arguing balls and strikes in the 10th inning of tonight's Mets/Marlins game. Here's the video:

Or Carp could have hit any of the other pitches. It's always the umpires fault. Hey Russ how many years did you play in the game?

Could you please stop trying to get a rise out of people?

Write your reasoning down and bring it up during the rules discussion at the end of the year. The concept of the call "realistically [resulting] in a different outcome" is specifically defined by UEFL rules as cited above.
