The hustling Davis was called safe, and Collins challenged the ruling. After a review, the call stood, leaving Davis at first.

Davis would advance to second on a Jean Segura single, but the play was ultimately inconsequential as Mejia finished the save.

Collins has challenged 22 plays this season, with 11 of those calls being overturned. He was 2-2 in four challenges during this weekend's series in Milwaukee.
