MLB Instant Replay Review 090: Quinn Wolcott (03)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Quinn Wolcott's out call in the top of the 8th inning of the Pirates-Reds game. With none out and one on, Pirates batter Pedro Alvarez hit a 1-2 curveball from Reds pitcher Manny Parra on the ground to first baseman Joey Votto, who threw to shortstop Zack Cozart to Parra, covering, as Alvarez arrived at first base, Pirates baserunner R1 Andrew McCutchen out at second. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle, Wolcott's ruling that Parra caught the ball and tagged first base prior to Alvarez's touch arrival was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Reds were leading, 7-3. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 7-5.

This is Quinn Wolcott (42)'s third Instant Replay Review of 2014.
