SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants unsuccessfully challenged a call at first base in the sixth inning of Friday night's game against the Reds.

With one out and Cincinnati's Chris Heisey on first base, Zack Cozart hit a sharp grounder to third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who threw to second in an effort to start a double play. But first-base umpire Dan Bellino ruled that second baseman Brandon Hicks' relay pulled first baseman Adam Duvall off the bag, rendering Cozart safe.

After a video review was conducted, the umpires ruled that the play would stand as called, though part of the Giants' assertion was that Cozart never touched the bag.

The decision proved to be moot, however, as Johnny Cueto grounded out to end the inning.

Luck and videotape went against the Giants again in the seventh inning, as an umpires' review of Jay Bruce's RBI single confirmed the initial ruling that right fielder Hunter Pence had trapped Bruce's hit while making a sliding attempt to snare the ball.
