Umpires in Detroit overturn 2 calls on review
DETROIT (AP) Instant replay is a hit so far at Comerica Park.
The Detroit Tigers benefited from a pair of reviews that overturned calls at first base in Wednesday’s game against the Kansas City Royals.
In the sixth inning, Tyler Collins of the Tigers was initially called out at first, giving Kansas City a 4-6-3 double play. The play was reviewed and Collins was ruled safe, although Detroit didn’t score that inning.
In the 10th, Kansas City’s Norichika Aoki was called safe at first, and it looked like the Royals would have first and third with two outs and the game tied.
But upon further review, the throw barely beat Aoki. He was called out to end the threat.
