MLB Instant Replay Review S-56: Jeff Nelson (S-3)

Instant replay affirmed 1B Umpire Jeff Nelson's out call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Astros-Braves game. With two out and three on, Braves batter Andrelton Simmons hit a 2-2 pitch from Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel to shortstop Jonathan Villar, who threw to first baseman Chris Carter as Simmons arrived at first base. Upon instant replay review as the result of a challenge by Braves Manager Fredi Gonzalez, Nelson's ruling that Wilson tagged Fuld while Fuld was off his base was upheld, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Braves were leading, 4-3. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 7-5.
