Video: Brandon Phillips awarded stolen base thanks to instant replay

The Reds were able to use the newly implemented replay system to their advantage Monday afternoon when getting an out overturned to a stolen base.

The review was sparked when Brandon Phillips attempted to steal third base in the bottom of the fifth against the Indians. As the video above shows, Phillips was able to slide in safely on a bang-bang play, but was called out initially on the field.

Bryan Price challenged the call with the umpires and an official review eventually resulted in the crew overturning the call to a stolen base for Phillips.

The Reds won the game in walk-off fashion in the bottom of the ninth, 5-4.
