MLB Instant Replay Review 035: Mike DiMuro (01)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Mike DiMuro's safe call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Rangers-Rays game. With none out and none on, Rangers batter Robinson Chirinos hit a 0-0 fastball from Rays pitcher David Price on the ground to shortstop Yunel Escobar who threw to first baseman James Loney as Chirinos arrived at first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Rays Manager Joe Maddon, DiMuro's ruling that Loney did not catch and tag first base prior to Chirinos' touch arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Rangers were leading, 2-0. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 5-4.
