Mattingly wins challenge at Angel Stadium
By Michael Lananna / MLB.com
ANAHEIM -- Don Mattingly successfully challenged a safe call at first base in the sixth inning of Thursday night's 7-0 Dodgers win against the Angels.
With left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu on the mound and the Dodgers leading, 4-0, Angels right fielder Collin Cowgill hit a ground ball to shortstop Miguel Rojas, who fired the ball to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. First-base umpire Manny Gonzalez originally ruled that Cowgill was safe.
But Mattingly came out to argue, and after a review, the play on the field was overturned.
The Dodgers are 15-12 on challenges this season.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Angels manager Mike Scioscia challenged an out call at first base on Erick Aybar's two-out grounder to Rojas. After the review, the ruling on the field was confirmed.
