D-backs lose challenge on play at first

D-backs lose challenge on play at first

DENVER -- In the midst of a losing streak on the field, the D-backs also lost a manager's challenge in the sixth inning Sunday afternoon at Coors Field.

With one out and a runner on second, D-backs outfielder A.J. Pollock hit a hard grounder to the left of third baseman Rafael Ynoa. Ynoa made a nice diving stop, but first baseman Michael Cuddyer had to dive to his right to field Ynoa's throw.

First base umpire Bill Miller ruled that Cuddyer was able to keep his foot on the bag and Pollock was out.

Pollock immediately jumped in the air and motioned for D-backs manager Kirk Gibson to come out and challenge the call.

A review ruled that the call would stand.

Mark Trumbo followed up the decision with a two-run homer to right that pulled the D-backs to within 6-2.
