Eric Hosmer hit the ball and was initially ruled safe at first base, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy got it overturned with the first successful replay challenge in World Series history. The Royals would have had two men on with no outs had Panik not reached that ball, and he somehow turned it into a twin killing.
