Reds turn two after Price's successful challenge

PITTSBURGH -- Reds manager Bryan Price successfully challenged a call at first base on Sunday vs. the Pirates that helped get his club a double play.

Pittsburgh had a runner on first base with no outs and a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning when Starling Marte hit a ground ball to second base. Brandon Phillips made a backhanded flip to shortstop Ramon Santiago, who fired a throw to first. Marte was ruled safe by first-base umpire Manny Gonzalez.

First baseman Todd Frazier gestured that he thought Marte was out, and it brought Price out of the dugout to challenge the call. It was overturned, giving the Reds the 4-6-3 double play. Jordy Mercer followed with a single, but the inning ended with a Chris Stewart popout.
