BALTIMORE -- Instant replay came into play in the first inning of Tuesday night's Rays-Orioles game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards when a crew chief review did not go in the Rays' favor.
With no outs and Rays runners on second and third, Logan Forsythe grounded to third baseman Chris Davis, who threw to first baseman Steve Pearce for the first out. Pearce then threw home when Desmond Jennings tried to score from third.
Home-plate umpire Pat Hoberg called Jennings out, but Rays manager Joe Maddon asked for a crew chief review because he felt catcher Caleb Joseph was blocking home plate.
The review lasted three minutes and 16 seconds before the decision was made that the call on the field stands and that there had been no violation.
A second crew chief review took place in the third inning to determine whether Nick Markakis had drawn a walk or simply a third ball.
After one minute and 47 seconds, the umpires determined that the call stood and Markakis just had a full count. The outfielder struck out looking on the next pitch.
