Replay confirms triple for Dodgers' Guerrero

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Instant replay confirmed the call on Dodgers second baseman Alex Guerrero's ninth-inning triple in Tuesday's game between the Dodgers and Royals at Surprise Stadium.

Guerrero led off the top of the ninth with a blast to center field. The ball hit off the top of the center-field wall, was fielded by Jarrod Dyson and thrown in while Guerrero stopped at third.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly came on to ask whether the ball cleared the wall for a homer, at which point the umpires decided to review the call, which was confirmed.

"Just home run or not," Mattingly said of his question to the umpires. "I feel it's one of those that are close enough. It's hard to see the rail [because] it's the same color and we couldn't really tell."
