MLB Ejection & Replay Review: Muchlinski, Wegner (1, 10)

HP Umpire Mike Muchlinski ejected Giants Manager Bruce Bochy for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 9th and Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Mark Wegner's out call in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the Rockies-Giants game. In the 2nd, with one out and two on, Giants batter Gregor Blanco bunted a 2-1 fastball from Rockies pitcher Juan Nicasio on the ground to Nicasio, who threw to first baseman Wilin Rosario as Blanco arrived at first base. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Giants Manager Bochy, Wegner's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Giants were leading, 2-0.

In the 9th, with one out and one on, Giants batter Juan Perez took a 1-2 fastball from Rockies pitcher LaTroy Hawkins for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the midpoint between the top of the uniform pants and shoulders (px .693, pz 3.177 / sz_top 3.390), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rockies were leading, 8-7. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 8-7.
