Crew-chief review confirms out call at home

Crew-chief review confirms out call at home

CINCINNATI -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke asked the umpires to take a second look at an out at the plate in the fourth inning of Thursday's series finale against the Reds, but an out remained an out in what briefly remained a tie game.

Ryan Braun broke from third base when Aramis Ramirez grounded to Cincinnati second baseman Brandon Phillips, whose throw home pulled catcher Tucker Barnhart up the third-base line. Braun tried to leap over Barnhart's glove, but he was tagged on the backside before he could score.

Roenicke requested a crew-chief review of whether Barnhart violated Rule 7.13, instituted this season to limit collisions at home plate. After a brief look, the decision was confirmed and the Brewers and Reds remained tied, 1-1.

Khris Davis promptly gave Milwaukee a lead with a sacrifice fly.
