Watch: Kozma mishandles throw, umps overturn initial missed call early in Game 1
Who needs replay?
With men on first and second and one out in the bottom of the first inning of Game 1 of the World Series, Boston's David Ortiz hit a ground ball to Cardinals second baseman Matt Carpenter. Carpenter flipped to shortstop Pete Kozma covering second base hoping for an inning-ending double play, but Kozma, perhaps overeager to make the pivot, let Carpenter's throw glance off the pinkie of his glove.
Second base umpire Dana DeMuth ruled that Kozma dropped the ball on the transfer, though he was likely the only person who saw the play live who thought that was the case. Check out the GIF above courtesy of @BuzzFeedSports:Mike Napoli Red Sox
