DENVER -- Rockies manager Walt Weiss won a challenge in the seventh inning that took a double away from Dodgers left fielder Matt Kemp, with the Dodgers leading by four runs in a game they won, 7-2, on Friday night at Coors Field.
Kemp thought he had homered off Matt Belisle leading off the inning and even shook hands with first-base coach Davey Lopes as he reached first base before realizing his shot had caromed high off the center-field fence.
"That's one thing I don't like about replay," said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, who otherwise has been a supporter of the change. "He's basically safe, he just stands up, one foot changes to the other and they keep the tag on. It's a technicality. If he slides and comes off the base, that's different."
Kemp was given a single on the play.
