MLB Instant Replay Review 669: Dan Iassogna (11)

Instant Replay Review confirmed 1B Umpire Dan Iassogna's runner placement call* in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Phillies-Pirates game. With none out and one on, Pirates batter Andrew McCutchen hit a fly ball to deep right-center field and near the top of the outfield wall. Upon Replay Review as the result of a request by Phillies Manager Ryne Sandberg and initiation by Crew Chief Dale Scott, Iassogna's ruling was affirmed, the call was correct.* At the time of the review, the Pirates were leading, 4-2. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 6-2.

This is Dan Iassogna (58)'s 11th Replay Review of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is Crew Chief Dale Scott's 35th supervised Replay Review of the 2014 Season.
*This call is correct pursuant to the tenet introduced by UEFL Rule 6-2-b-6, which states, "Any displayed reasoning for such a call, including a communicated application or interpretation of a rule, shall not affect the determination of Quality of Correctness. Quality of Correctness is governed by the (in)correctness of the call made, not by the quality of reasoning given for such a call." Thus, as the runner remained on third base and no out was recorded, the call was affirmed (correct).

This is the 669th Instant Replay Review of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the Philadelphia Phillies' 21st Replay Review of 2014.
Umpires are now 349/669 (.521 Affirmation Rate) in Replay Reviews during the 2014 MLB season.
