Hurdle wins challenge as call overturned at first

Hurdle wins challenge as call overturned at first

ATLANTA -- Little went right for the Pirates in their first game after clinching a postseason berth, but manager Clint Hurdle's successful challenge did lead to an inning-ending out in the sixth inning of Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Braves.

Third baseman Josh Harrison charged Phil Gosselin's two-out grounder, but his throw to first was judged tardy by umpire Jerry Layne.

On Hurdle's challenge, the play was reviewed and quickly overturned, as replays clearly showed Gosselin had not yet come down on the bag when first baseman Ike Davis gloved the throw.
