MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez's liner down the left-field line was ruled a home run after umpires reversed a foul ball call using video replay in the seventh inning that snapped a tie and lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-6 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.
Ramirez hit a 1-2 pitch off rookie Robert Coello (0-1) that hit the outside corner of a yellow pad below the foul pole. Third base umpire Paul Nauert ruled it a foul ball. He agreed to check video replay after discussing the play with Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke and third base coach Ed Sedar while watching a fan dramatically pound the pad in question.
Umpires spent about 90 seconds checking the replay, before returning and signaling a home run for Ramirez, his eighth of the year.
Kameron Loe (4-2) was credited with the win despite allowing Jose Bautista to hit a game-tying three-run home run in the top of the seventh.
