Nationals get safe call at second overturned

PHILADELPHIA -- Vying for an insurance run in a one-run game in the seventh inning, the Phillies' Domonic Brown hit a soft liner in front of Bryce Harper in left field. Brown busted out of the box and tried to stretch the hit into a double. He beat Harper's throw to the bag and was called safe on the field, but appeared to come off the base as he popped up after his slide.
Nationals manager Matt Williams quickly left the dugout to challenge the call, and after a review that lasted just over two minutes, the ruling on the field was overturned as the replay revealed that Brown came off the base and Danny Espinosa was there to get him with the tag for the inning's first out.
