3/12 Instant replay

Cubs manager Rick Renteria took advantage of the new instant replay rules and challenged a call in the fourth inning Wednesday night. With one out in the inning, and the game tied at 2, Ryan Kalish chopped the ball to Mariners shortstop Brad Miller, who threw to first. Kalish was called out on the close play. Renteria went out to first base umpire Dan Bellino and challenged the call. After Bellino and umpire Hal Gibson conferred on headsets with someone in New York who reviewed the play, the call was upheld.

Wednesday was the third Cubs game in which instant replay was available. Renteria did not challenge a call in the first game, and he was not at the second game because it was a split squad game in Tempe, and bench coach Brandon Hyde was acting manager. Instant replay also will be in effect March 16 and March 19.
