MILWAUKEE — The morning after his Los Angeles Dodgers lost a game on a disputed play at the plate, manager Don Mattingly made a case for the expanded use of instant replay reviews in baseball.

Mattingly says he would like to see plays at the plate become subject to review, and suggested that it was worth considering the use of instant replay to review any game-ending play. Currently, home runs are subject to review, although the expansion of replay has been considered.

Milwaukee's Nyjer Morgan was called safe on a slide home in the 10th inning Wednesday night, giving the Brewers a 3-2 victory. Replays showed that catcher A.J. Ellis might have tagged him out just before he touched home plate.
