D-backs earn caught-stealing after challenge

SAN FRANCISCO -- The D-backs won a manager's challenge Wednesday night to help thwart a possible Giants rally.

With one out in the third, Angel Pagan attempted to steal second and was called safe by second-base umpire David Rackley after a tag by shortstop Didi Gregorius.

D-backs manager Kirk Gibson initially had a conversation with home-plate umpire Brian Gorman before heading out to second base to tell Rackley he intended to challenge the play.

After a very short review, the call was overturned, wiping Pagan off the bases.

Joe Panik followed the decision by drawing a walk before Buster Posey flied out to left to end the inning.
