MLB Instant Replay Review 340: Ron Kulpa (02)

Instant Replay Review upheld HP Umpire Ron Kulpa's safe call in the top of the 3rd inning of the Rangers-Tigers game. With one out and one on, Rangers batter Mitch Moreland hit a 2-2 changeup from Tigers pitcher Robbie Ray on the ground to first baseman Miguel Cabrera, deflected to second baseman Ian Kinsler, who threw to catcher Alex Avila as Tigers baserunner R2 Adrian Beltre slid into home plate. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Tigers Manager Brad Ausmus, Kulpa's ruling was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Rangers were leading, 5-0. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 9-2.
