NEW YORK -- Josh Harrison hit a double off the left-field wall in the fifth inning of Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees, but he was then caught in a rundown between second and third base. Harrison was eventually called out, and his running mistake ended the inning and cost the Pirates the opportunity to have two runners in scoring position with two outs.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle challenged the out call, while also hoping that Harrison, if out, maybe wasted enough time in the rundown for Travis Snider to score the tying run. But the ruling on the field was confirmed after replay review, ending the inning with the Yankees leading, 2-1.

"When he called me out, I just asked if it was on the tag or did he call me out of the baseline," Harrison said. "He said the tag. I was trying my best. Stop, drop and roll, and he might have got me when I hit the ground."
