Second baseman Jonathan Schoop dropped the ball while transferring it to his bare hand, but that happened after he touched second. Gibbons came out to argue the call, thinking there might have been an outside chance Jose Bautista beat the throw.
"I thought he might have got his foot in there," Gibbons said.
That wasn't the case and following a brief delay, the call on the field was confirmed. Danny Valencia then grounded out to third base as the game came to an end.
