CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds are waiting to hear from Major League Baseball about the replay dispute that led to Bryan Price's first ejection as manager.
Price was ejected during the first inning of Cincinnati's 1-0 loss in 10 innings at Atlanta on Sunday. Price asked for a replay after B.J. Upton was called safe at first base on Johnny Cueto's pickoff throw. First baseman Joey Votto made a swipe at Upton's hand before it touched the base.
The replay was deemed inconclusive and the call stood. Price came out to discuss it further and was ejected.
The Reds sought clarification from MLB on Monday about why the replay was deemed inconclusive. Price wishes managers could talk to umpires after a replay decision. They're not allowed to challenge a replay decision.
