Review helps Royals tie game in ninth

Umpires changed what was initially ruled a triple hit by Eric

Hosmer in the ninth inning to a game-tying home run after a video

review in Monday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

With the Royals trailing 4-3 in the ninth, Hosmer led off with

what appeared to be a home run off White Sox closer Sergio


The ball appeared to clear the center-field wall but hit a

railing on the side ricocheting the ball back onto the field.

Second base umpire Alfonso Marquez signaled the ball was in play

as Hosmer advanced to third.

Royals manager Ned Yost contested the call, and the umpire

reviewed it.

Moments after the review, Marquez signaled a home run.
