Scioscia wins challenge on foul ball call

MLB.com

SEATTLE -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia challenged a call that was overturned on an initial Justin Smoak double Wednesday, making him 8-for-15 in challenges this season.

Leading off the fourth inning with a 2-0 Mariners lead, Smoak skied a C.J. Wilson offering to deep right field and wound up on second base after first-base umpire Dan Iassogna called it fair. Replays, however, showed the ball landed to the right of the chalk, and umpires acknowledged as much after confirming with replay.
