MLB Replays & Ejection: Eddings, O'Nora (03-04, 1|02)
In the 13th, with none out and one on, Rays batter Matt Joyce hit a 1-0 changeup from Yankees pitcher Adam Warren on the ground to third baseman Yangervis Solarte, who stepped on second base and threw to first baseman Mark Teixeira as Joyce arrived at first base, Rays baserunner R1 Brandon Guyer out at second. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Yankees Manager Joe Girardi, Eddings' ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. Replays indicate Teixeira maintained contact with first base and in doing so legally tagged the base while in possession of the baseball, O'Nora's call (ejection) was correct. At the time of the review and ejection, the contest was tied, 5-5.
In the 14th, with one out and one on, Rays batter Guyer hit a 0-1 fastball from Yankees pitcher Chris Leroux on the ground to center fielder Brett Gardner, who threw to catcher Brian McCann as Rays baserunner R2 Sean Rodriguez slid into home plate. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Yankees Manager Girardi, O'Nora's ruling was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Rays were leading, 8-5. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 10-5, in 14 innings.
