MLB Instant Replay Review 657: Jerry Layne (09)

Instant Replay Review overturned 2B Umpire Jerry Layne's out call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Orioles-Red Sox game. With none out and one on, Orioles baserunner R1 J.J. Hardy attempted to steal second base on a swinging strikeout by batter Manny Machado, Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski to second baseman Dustin Pedroia as Hardy slid into second base and HP Umpire Mike DiMuro called Machado for backswing interference. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Orioles Manager Buck Showalter, Layne's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect and DiMuro's interference call was enforced. At the time of the review, the game was tied, 0-0. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 7-4.

This is Jerry Layne (24)'s ninth Replay Review of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is Crew Chief Jerry Layne's 40th (first to 40) supervised Replay Review of the 2014 Season.
*Rule 6.06(c) Comment: "If a batter strikes at a ball and misses and swings so hard he carries the bat all the way around and, in the umpire’s judgment, unintentionally hits the catcher or the ball in back of him on the back- swing, it shall be called a strike only (not interference). The ball will be dead, however, and no runner shall advance on the play."

This is the 657th Instant Replay Review of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the Baltimore Orioles' 19th Replay Review of 2014.
