MLB Instant Replay Review 027: Marty Foster (01)

Instant Replay Review overturned 2B Umpire Marty Foster's safe call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Giants-Dodgers game. With none out and one on, Dodgers baserunner R1 Hanley Ramirez attempted to steal second base on a 0-2 fastball from Giants pitcher J Gutierrez, catcher Buster Posey to shortstop Joaquin Arias as Ramirez slid into second base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Giants Manager Bruce Bochy, Foster's ruling that Arias did not tag Ramirez prior to Ramirez's foot contacting second base was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Giants were leading, 8-4. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 8-4.
