Call upheld after Cubs challenge in ninth

ST. LOUIS -- Cubs manager Rick Renteria challenged whether the Cardinals' Allen Craig was hit by a pitch by Jose Veras in the ninth, and the call was upheld.

The Cardinals were trailing 3-1 in the ninth when Yadier Molina singled off Veras. Craig was hit on the second pitch from Veras, but Renteria challenged the call.
