MLB: LaRoche, Gload lose home runs

Associated Press
MILWAUKEE ó Florida Marlins pinch-hitter Ross Gload had a home run taken away after a video replay review Wednesday night ó hours after Pittsburgh’s Adam LaRoche became the first player to lose one that way.
Gload’s drive in the sixth inning was down the right-field line and into a corner with an 8-foot wall. Milwaukee led 8-5 at the time.
First base umpire Bruce Dreckman called it fair for a two-run homer. Dreckman, plate umpire Gary Darling and second base umpire Bill Hohn then went to replay.
They took just two minutes to return to call it foul. Gload struck out two pitches later.
LaRoche’s long drive with a runner on in the first inning struck either a railing or small protective screen above the 21-foot wall in right field ó both objects are in play ó but first base umpire Lance Barksdale signaled a home run. LaRoche, who had stopped at second, hesitated momentarily before rounding third and touching the plate.
Crew chief Randy Marsh, Barksdale and Alfonso Marquez watched the replay, and Marsh quickly changed the call to a double. The Pirates did not argue, and no TV replay showed LaRoche’s flyball reaching the seats.
