Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The first replay under the new challenge system took place Monday in Pittsburgh, and it took only a few minutes.

Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria challenged a call on a double play in the fifth inning when he thought pitcher Jeff Samardzija was safe on a close play at first base.

First base umpire Bob Davidson made the out call when Samardzija bunted into a 1-5-4 double play. Renteria calmly and slowly walked toward first base to question the call and decided he wanted to challenge.

The review, in a call from the field umpires with replay headquarters in New York, quickly upheld Davidson's decision.
