Jack Hannahan of the Cleveland Indians has been awarded a home run after umpires reversed a call on instant replay. Hannahan hit a drive down the right-field line that caromed off the wall and back past Texas Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz. Hannahan made it to third with what appeared to be a stand-up triple. Indians manager Manny Acta came out to argue and plate umpire Dale Scott and his crew went to look at video replays, which showed the ball hit above the yellow line atop the wall. Scott came out and signaled a homer, giving Cleveland a 3-1 lead in the third inning.
