So if the umpire signalled Soto out, and Turner retreated to first as a result, it seems a little unfair to then say that Soto illegally passed Turner on the basepath. They were both only reacting to the umpire's signal.

If Soto and Turner keep running, and the umpire's call stands, then Soto is out on the fly ball and Turner is doubled off first.

I'd have put Soto at 1st and Turner at 2nd.

That was one of the objections to replay to begin with. Actions taken on the field are based on the umpire's call at the time.

Did the Nats challenge the ruling, or was it an automatic type thing because it was boundary-ish?
