NEW YORK -- Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez appears to have escaped a fine from Major League Baseball after saying a replay decision was one of the "worst" calls he'd ever seen.<br /> <br /> Gonzalez hadn't heard from MLB before Tuesday night's game against the New York Mets.<br /> <br /> Gonzalez was ejected Monday night in the ninth inning for arguing after a call was reversed on replay. A Mets runner was ruled safe at second on a bunt play when a review showed Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons came off the base too early.<br /> <br /> The so-called "neighborhood play" is not subject to a replay challenge. MLB put out a postgame statement saying that umpires can use a number of factors to determine what makes up a "neighborhood" play. Crew chief Mike Everitt said the umpires reviewed the play because they felt the throw took Simmons off the bag.<br /> <br /> The Mets won 4-3 in the 11th.
