TEMPE, Ariz. -- A day later,
Trout, trying for an inside-the-park home run, was called out on a head-first slide into the plate. Manager
"Honestly, I don't know the rules right now," Trout said. "I've got to do my homework. I'm told to go in sliding. I can run into the catcher, but I can't lead with my shoulder. You have to slide or you're out."
A replay review of Rule 7.13 can only be initiated by the umpires. But while going to video to check Ellis' positioning, umpires also checked the tag, which was applied before Trout touched the plate. Scioscia was not charged with a replay challenge on the play.
"We'll be able to get some answers," Scioscia said.
