SAN DIEGO -- Judging by his immediate reaction, Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay knew a key call in Wednesday's game against the Padres would be overturned well before the umpires got their first look.
With a runner aboard and left-hander Will Smith and the Brewers nursing a one-run lead, Padres three-hole hitter Seth Smith hit a grounder to Overbay that pulled the veteran from the bag. He had to hustle over to attempt a tag, and first base ump Ted Barrett initially ruled Smith safe, drawing a strong reaction from Overbay.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke challenged the call, and, after only 41 seconds, it was overturned.
