Call upheld after Cubs challenge in ninth
By Carrie Muskat / MLB.com
ST. LOUIS -- Cubs manager Rick Renteria challenged whether the Cardinals' Allen Craig was hit by a pitch by Jose Veras in the ninth, and the call was upheld.
The Cardinals were trailing 3-1 in the ninth when Yadier Molina singled off Veras. Craig was hit on the second pitch from Veras, but Renteria challenged the call.
Home plate umpire Gabe Morales needed a little extra time before he could review the play because the umpires didn't know which dugout had the headset and equipment.
After a short review, the call was upheld. The Cardinals ended up scoring twice in the bottom of the ninth to send the game into extra innings.
