MLB Instant Replay Review 047: Quinn Wolcott (01)

Instant Replay Review upheld 1B Umpire Quinn Wolcott's out call in the top of the 8th inning of the Rays-Royals game. With two out and none on, Rays batter Will Myers hit a 1-0 change up from Royals pitcher Jason Vargas to second baseman Danny Valencia, who threw to first baseman Eric Hosmer as Myers arrived at first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Rays Manager Joe Maddon, Wolcott's ruling that Hosmer caught the ball and tagged first base prior to Myers' touch arrival was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Royals were leading, 4-0. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 4-2.
