WASHINGTON -- After Tuesday's game, Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond had been charged with nine errors, which led the Major Leagues. However, an error was taken away from Desmond by Major League Baseball before Wednesday's game against the Angels.

On April 11, Braves outfielder B.J. Upton came to the plate and hit a hard ground ball to Desmond, who backhanded the ball but did not field it cleanly. Desmond was charged with an error on the play. Upton asked for a review on the play, and on Wednesday, the call was overturned to a hit by Joe Torre, the league's executive vice president of baseball operations.

Desmond and Upton were not available for comment.
