Ruggiano caught stealing, call stands on review

CHICAGO -- Cubs manager Rick Renteria challenged whether Justin Ruggiano stole second base or not in the fifth inning.

Ruggiano was hit by a pitch with one out in the inning against the Rays, and then tried to steal second. Umpire Alan Porter called Ruggiano out, but Renteria challenged the call, and after a four-minute, 10-second review, the call stood.

Ruggiano has two stolen bases this year, and has been caught stealing four times.
