Cubs lose first challenge in MLB history (Video)

First-MLB-challengeCan you think of a more fitting way for Major League Baseball to debut its new instant replay system than for the Chicago Cubs to lose a challenge? Neither can we.

The first regular season instant replay challenge in MLB history took place in the fifth inning of Chicago’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija bunted into a double play with runners on first and second, and Chicago manager Rick Renteria believed Samardzija had beaten the throw to first.

Renteria called timeout and told crew chief John Hirschbeck that he wanted the play to be reviewed. Hirschbeck then called the replay command center in New York and the play stood as called. The entire process lasted about a minute and a half.

Do the Cubs know how to lose or do the Cubs know how to lose?
