WIlliams requests replay review, call upheld

VIERA, Fla. - Nationals manager Matt Williams just challenged a call by first base umpire Gary Cederstrom, and was unsuccessful.

With two down in the seventh, Ezequiel Carrera singled to left, but left fielder Bryce Harper fielded the ball and threw behind the runner at first, firing a strike to first baseman Ryan Zimmerman.

Carrera appeared to get back to the bag ahead of Zimmerman’s tag, but Williams strolled out of the dugout and requested the video replay to be reviewed.

After review lasting 1:56, Cederstrom’s call was upheld.
