TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Replay has confirmed an umpire’s call that Mike Trout was out at the plate while trying for an inside-the-park home run for the Los Angeles Angels.

Trout was called out at home by umpire Rob Drake in Thursday’s game between the Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Trout hit a line drive that got past diving center fielder Yasiel Puig. The ball rolled to the wall and Puig threw to shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who made the relay to catcher A.J. Ellis.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia initially appeared to argue with Drake, but quickly nodded his head and went to the other three umpires on the field for about a three-minute meeting.

The umpires went to the replay and 1 minute, 12 seconds later they upheld the call.
