Cubs lose their first replay challenge
By Jesse Rogers
PEORIA, Ariz. -- Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria lost his first replay challenge of the spring.
Umpires upheld their on-field ruling that Cubs batter Ryan Kalish was out at first base on a grounder in the fourth inning against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.
Kalish hit a ball to shortstop Brad Miller and was ruled out by first-base umpire Dan Bellino. Renteria had a short conversation with him, then asked for a replay that was initiated by Bellino and second-base umpire Hal Gibson.
After a short delay to watch the replay the ruling on the field was upheld.
