MLB Instant Replay Review 271: Bill Welke (06)

Instant Replay Review overturned 2B Umpire Bill Welke's safe call in the top of the 4th inning of the Rangers-Astros game. With one out and none on, Rangers batter Prince Fielder hit a 0-1 slider from Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel on a line drive to left fielder LJ Hoes, who threw to third baseman Matt Dominguez as Fielder slid into second base. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Astros Manager Bo Porter, Welke's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Astros were leading, 3-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 8-0.
