Astros manager A.J. Hinch lost a challenge resulting in the final out of the seventh inning, when George Springer was called out at home plate with the Astros ahead, 2-1. Springer tried to score from first base on Bregman’s second hit of the game, a single that got pastJason Heyward in right field. After taking a relay throw from shortstop Javier Baez, Contreras applied the tag on Springer’s foot as he was sliding headfirst into home. The review took one minute and 41 seconds as the out call was confirmed.

Springer reached a top speed of 19.43 mph as tracked by Statcast™.

Baez’s throw was projected at 87.07 mph.
