Challenge overturns call at first in seventh

Challenge overturns call at first in seventh

SAN FRANCISCO -- Manager Bruce Bochy has always been one to stick up for his players, and that was no different in the seventh inning Sunday.

Joe Panik hit a soft dribbler down the third-base line, and Padres pitcher Frank Garces fired to first. First-base umpire Tom Hallion called Panik out, which prompted a challenge from Bochy.

After a review, the call was overturned.

On the season, Bochy is 22-for-35 in challenges.
