Fan makes great catch over tarp while holding baby

CHICAGO (AP) -- A man holding a baby made a great barehanded catch over the glove of Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez on Tuesday night, prompting a replay review.

With two out and none on base in the second inning at Wrigley Field, Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel fouled off a pitch from Zack Greinke. Gonzalez chased the popup and reached over the rolled-up tarp while trying to make a play, but the man reached out and grabbed the ball with his right hand while carrying a baby sucking on a bottle in his left arm.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly then came out of the dugout and argued for fan interference. While the play was being reviewed, the crowd roared as the sequence was shown again on ballpark's videoboards.

After a short delay, the call was reversed and Hammel was ruled out, ending the inning.
