WASHINGTON -- Not only did the Mets win a replay challenge on Friday, they also wiped an error off the record books.
Leading off the second, Espinosa hit a ground ball to shortstop, where Tejada fielded it and fired high to first. Lucas Duda jumped to catch Tejada's throw, attempting to swipe Espinosa with a tag as he ran by. But first-base umpire Ed Hickox ruled that Duda missed Espinosa, resulting in a throwing error for Tejada.
Collins immediately ran out to challenge, and umpires overturned the call. Replays clearly showed that Duda tagged Espinosa before he reached the bag.
Collins improved to 4-3 on manager challenges this season. The Mets are 7-4 in total on replay reviews.
