MLB Instant Replay Review 372: Tim Welke (06)

Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Tim Welke's catch (out) call in the top of the 7th inning of the Nationals-Pirates game. With one out and two on, Nationals batter Ian Desmond hit a 1-1 fastball from Pirates pitcher Vin Mazzaro on a fly ball to right fielder Josh Harrison, who attempted to catch the ball as it descended towards the ground. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Nationals Manager Matt Williams, Welke's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Nationals were leading, 5-1. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 5-2.
