Call upheld at second after Dodgers challenge

Call upheld at second after Dodgers challenge

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers lost a challenge review on Wednesday in their 9-2 loss to the D-backs.

In the top of the fifth inning with one out and runners on the corners, second-base umpire Mike DiMuro ruled Didi Gregorius safe on a steal. Tim Wallach, acting manager with Don Mattingly out of camp after a death in the family, lodged a challenge for a replay review.

The replay appeared to show that shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who took catcher A.J. Ellis' throw, blocked the bag with his foot and tagged Gregorius as he overslid and came off the bag.

But after communicating with replay officials, crew chief Brian Gorman upheld the original safe call.

"It was worth challenging at that point in the game," said Wallach.
