ANAHEIM -- Christian Yelich was denied a home run in the sixth inning by mere inches on Monday night. Not even instant replay was able to give the Marlins left fielder a boost.

Yelich opened the sixth inning with a long drive off Angels right-hander Cory Rasmus. The liner to right field hit high off the wall at the yellow stripe.

The ball clanked off the wall and returned to the field of play, and Yelich coasted into second base with a double.

Because borderline home runs are automatically subject to review, Miami manager Mike Redmond requested one. The crew-chief review took place, and after 57 seconds, the ruling on the field was confirmed.

Even though Yelich didn't pick up his 10th homer of the season, the Miami leadoff hitter did have his third hit of the night.
