PHILADELPHIA -- In a tied game in the top of the ninth inning between the Cardinals and Phillies, a call was confirmed after a crew chief review was initiated.

Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong skied a pitch from Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon to the deepest part of the park in center. Phillies center fielder Ben Revere went back on the ball, but it sailed over his head. After hitting off the wall, the ball ricocheted off Revere's leg and into the hedges beyond the center-field fence. The initial ruling on the field put Wong on second base with a ground-rule double.

A crew chief review for a rules check on a deflected ball was initiated, and shortly, the call on the field was confirmed.

Replay again came into play when, with one out in the 10th inning, the Cardinals' Peter Bourjos hit a ball to Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who fired the ball to get Bourjos on a close play at first. The Cardinals asked for a review as first-base coach Chris Maloney motioned to first-base umpire D.J. Reyburn that Bourjos was safe.

After a 59-second review, the call was ruled to stand and the Cardinals didn't score in the inning.
