O's lose review on close play at second base

BOSTON -- The Orioles lost their challenge in the ninth inning of Monday's 4-0 win over the Red Sox, with umpires confirming the on-fielding ruling that Alejandro De Aza was out.

De Aza, who reached on a walk, tried to steal second as Nelson Cruz struck out, but Boston catcher David Ross threw down to second baseman Dustin Pedroia just in time to complete an inning-ending double play.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter came out to challenge the ruling, but after a review of one minute, eight seconds, the call was confirmed.
