Mets win replay challenge in third inning vs. Braves
By Joe Morgan / MLB.com
ATLANTA -- Mets manager Terry Collins earned his first overturned call on a challenge since May 31 on Monday night at Turner Field.
B.J. Upton beat catcher Travis d'Arnaud's throw to second base in the bottom of the third for what looked like his 13th stolen base of 2014, but the Braves' center fielder came off the bag, allowing second baseman Daniel Murphy to apply the tag.
However, second-base umpire Dan Iassogna ruled Upton safe on the play. Collins came out of the dugout to issue the challenge, and Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez soon followed to argue whether or not New York could contend the play.
After speaking with umpires, Gonzalez returned to the dugout as umpires went to review the call. One minute and 15 seconds later, the Mets improved to 6-9 on manager challenges this season.
d'Arnaud has thrown out six of 24 would-be basestealers this season. Meanwhile, it was only the third time this season Upton has been caught stealing in 15 attempts.
