Home-plate umpire Gerry Davis asked third-base umpire Greg Gibson for help and Gibson ruled the ball hit the ground for a foul ball, but Rays manager Joe Maddon came out to argue that Molina caught the foul tip, which should've been a strikeout for the second out of the inning.
The umpires then met to discuss the play and ruled that Molina did catch the foul tip, handing Swisher the strikeout. Indians manager Terry Francona came out to discuss the play, but it was upheld as a strikeout for Cobb, who was able to get Jason Kipnis to ground out softly back to the mound to end the first inning.
