Replay Upholds Home Run In Mets-Marlins Game

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Umpires have used video replay to review a home run by the New York Mets' Fernando Tatis, upholding his go-ahead shot against the Florida Marlins.

With the score tied at 2 Wednesday, Tatis led off the sixth inning and drove an 0-1 pitch from Josh Johnson to left field. A fan reached over the railing above the high fence in an attempt to catch the ball, which ricocheted back onto the field.

Second-base umpire Dale Scott signaled home run almost immediately, but Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez came out to argue for fan interference. The umps huddled on the infield and then three of them disappeared under the third-base stands.
