Hoskins loses tying HR to replay, Mets hold on for wild win over Phillies
Instant replay strikes again.
But umpires reviewed the round-tripper call, as it was unclear whether the ball struck either a seat or the metal railing atop the right-field fence. The call was overturned after a two-minute review as umpires ruled the ball struck the railing, making it a fair ball.
Instead of a three-run homer, a visibly furious Hoskins was given a two-RBI ground-rule double. Mets trainers examined Diaz during the review and removed him from the game with an injury.
"I mean that's what the replay system is there for," Phillies manager Joe Girardi said, according to ESPN. "I mean obviously, it's frustrating it goes against us, but I'm assuming that they were right. I mean I'm making the assumption and you know I've said all along the whole idea is to get calls right. It's frustrating because we thought we tied it up and then it's kind of like, you know, it's tough."
