Missing correct angle, MLB blows replay review

NEW YORK — Major League Baseball said it made the wrong call on a replay challenge during a game between the Red Sox and Yankees.

New York's Dean Anna was ruled safe on a double in the eighth inning Saturday. A television replay showed his right foot briefly came off the base as he stood up while SS Xander Bogaerts was tagging him.

Boston manager John Farrell challenged the call. Moments later, Anna was ruled safe.

MLB said the conclusive angle wasn't immediately available in the replay center in New York.

No one scored after the play.

"We probably had five angles that confirmed his foot was off the base," Farrell said.

"It certainly raises questions on if they are getting the same feed we are, the consistency of the system. So, it makes you scratch your head a little bit on why he was called safe."

NO TOUCHING: Mets RF Curtis Granderson admonished an Angels fan who touched him on the back after he made a play in the rightfield corner during Friday's game in Anaheim.

The incident occurred after J.B. Shuck flied out to Granderson in the eighth inning. Granderson was returning the ball to the infield when the fan reached out from the stands.

"He touched me and then I turned around," Granderson said. "He was like, 'No, I didn't mean to.' I was, 'Hey, just don't touch me.' … Say whatever you want to say. Boo, cheer, clap, cheer for your team, cheer for the other team. But just don't physically touch the players."

CARDS EXTEND GM: The Cardinals extended the contract of GM John Mozeliak for two years through the 2018 season. Under Mozeliak, 45, St. Louis has won two National League pennants and a World Series title in six years.

SETBACK FOR REDS ACE: Reds RHP Mat Latos had an MRI exam on his sore pitching forearm, a new problem that leaves him unsure of the next step in his recovery from a knee injury.

A'S: Former Rays OF Sam Fuld was designated for assignment when OF Craig Gentry was activated from the 15-day disabled list.

CUBS: RHP Jose Veras, who has allowed five runs in 32/3 innings over four appearances, was pulled from the closer role.

NATIONALS: 3B Ryan Zimmerman fractured his right thumb and is expected to be out four to six weeks. … OF Denard Span, a former Tampa Catholic standout, went on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

ORIOLES: 3B Manny Machado, who is rehabbing from left knee surgery, got six at-bats in a simulated game.

RED SOX: Closer Koji Uehara is still out with stiffness in his right (pitching) shoulder, and it's uncertain when he will be able to pitch again.
