Phillies strike out on replay reviews
The Philadelphia Phillies went 0 for 2 on video replay reviews after two doubles were not changed into home runs against the Cincinnati Reds.
Carlos Ruiz led off the third inning Sunday with a ground-rule double when a fan reached over the fence and touched the ball. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel came out to argue and the play went under a brief review. The double stood and Ruiz would score on Jimmy Rollins' RBI single.
Jayson Werth hit a drive to deep center in the fourth that was caught by a fan. Manuel again came out to protest that the ball had cleared the wall. Replays clearly showed the fan leaned over the rail and Werth had a double.
