Buck awarded home run after review

Buck awarded home run after review

|
TORONTO -- The Blue Jays' John Buck hit his 17th homer of the season in the second inning Tuesday night against the Rangers, but first he had to stop at second base.

The ball bounced back onto the field and was initially ruled a double. Toronto manager Cito Gaston came out to ask for a review by the umpiring crew led by Tom Hallion. The review showed that it was a home run, making Buck one shy of his career high, which came three years ago for the Royals.

The replay showed that Buck's drive hit the railing behind the right-field fence in the visitors' bullpen area.

The homer -- the first of four on the night -- given up by Scott Feldman gave the Blue Jays an early lead in Toronto's 8-5 win over Texas.
