The Rockies had scored twice in the 10th when Charlie Culberson grounded to Cubs second baseman Arismendy Alcantara with two on and one out. McKenry slid to the outside and tried to reach the plate with his hand, but was tagged by Cubs catcher John Baker. Little emphatically signaled that McKenry was touched on the chest before he touched the plate.
Manager Walt Weiss challenged, but the call stood and Baker was ruled to have not blocked the plate illegally. Weiss is 12-for-29 on instant replay challenges this season.
