Review shows Cubs nab Hamilton at second

CHICAGO -- The Reds' Billy Hamilton has nine stolen bases against the Cubs this season, but manager Rick Renteria denied a 10th theft in the fourth on Tuesday night.

Renteria challenged whether Hamilton was safe on a stolen base attempt, and the call was overturned after review.

Hamilton drew a walk against Chicago starter Jake Arrieta to open the fourth, and broke for second on the first pitch to Brayan Pena. Second-base umpire Bill Miller called Hamilton safe. Cubs catcher Welington Castillo's throw to Javier Baez was high, and the shortstop made an acrobatic catch.

The review comfirmed the tag was in time.
