HOUSTON -- Astros outfielder Fernando Martinez circled the bases in the fourth inning Sunday afternoon after hitting what he believed was his second home run the season, but modern technology spoiled the trot.
Martinez hit a fly ball to left-center field that caromed near the yellow line and bounced back into play for what was initially ruled a home run. D-backs manager Kirk Gibson asked the umpires to take a look at instant replay.
The umpires emerged within minutes and determined Martinez's ball struck below the yellow line, which was a double. Martinez went back to second base and was eventually stranded at third base.
