Brewers win challenge on disputed HR trot, fall to Giants 8-4
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers won a challenge after Khris Davis was called out for missing the plate on a home run trot, but Hunter Pence and the San Francisco Giants wound up with an 8-4 win Monday, May 25th.
Davis hit a pair of solo homers, including one that led to a bizarre sequence.
In the first inning, he pointed in the crowd in celebration and skipped across the plate. It appeared to both umpire Will Little and Giants catcher Andrew Susac that Davis' right foot failed to touch down on the dish, and he was ruled out.
Brewers manager Craig Counsell contested the call and after a replay review that took several minutes, the home run counted. Davis stomped firmly in the middle of the plate after homering in the third.
Pence's two-run double capped a seven-run rally in the sixth. Center fielder Carlos Gomez made two errors in the inning.
