Call stands after umpire rules Dodgers' Gonzalez safe on close play
By Stephen Pianovich
PITTSBURGH -- The Pirates lost a first-inning challenge in Monday's game against the Dodgers on a safe call at second base.
Facing Pirates starter Edinson Volquez with two outs, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez laced a line drive off the right-field wall, which was quickly fielded and thrown to second by Michael Martinez. Second-base umpire Laz Diaz ruled Gonzalez slid in safely ahead of shortstop Jordy Mercer's tag, and the call stood after replay review.
