CINCINNATI -- Reds manager Bryan Price unsuccessfully challenged a play at first base in the third inning of Cincinnati's series finale against the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon at Great American Ball Park.

With runners at first and second and nobody out, Jose Bautista dropped down a bunt that starting pitcher Johnny Cueto couldn't field cleanly. Cueto threw to first, but Bautista was ruled safe. After a one-minute, 43-second review, the call stood.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was successful in a challenge of another close play at first base in the top of the seventh. Melky Cabrera hit a sharp ground ball to the left of Todd Frazier at third base, which Frazier dove for, gloved, and threw to first. Cabrera was called out.

After two minutes and 21 seconds, the call was overturned and Cabrera was ruled safe at first.
