Cubs' challenge ends inning with 7-6-3 double play

Replay overturns safe call as relay throw beats Hanley back to first base

CHICAGO -- Cubs manager Rick Renteria challenged a call at first base in the Dodgers' third inning on Sunday, and it was overturned.

With one out and Hanley Ramirez at first, Carl Crawford flied out to left fielder Chris Coghlan, who threw to shortstop Javier Baez. He fired to first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who received the throw just before Ramirez returned to the bag.

First-base umpire Greg Gibson called Ramirez safe, but after a review, the call was overturned and the inning ended on the 7-6-3 double play.

Renteria now has challenged 54 calls and won 24.
