SEATTLE (AP) - Twice in the first inning, Seattle Mariners batters had fly balls land on the yellow line at the top of the wall - and both times umpires' calls on the field were correct.
The rare occurrence happened on consecutive batters in the first inning on Monday night against the Chicago White Sox. It started when Robinson Cano lined an opposite-field shot off the top of the wall in left. The ball hit the yellow line and bounced back on the field and ruled a double. The play was reviewed and the call was confirmed.
The next batter, Corey Hart, hit a ball to deep right, again hitting the yellow line and bouncing back on the field. Umpires ruled it a hit, not a home run, and it was confirmed on replay. Hart was thrown out at second trying to stretch the hit into a double.
