Brewers on winning end of pair of challenges

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers were on the winning end of two challenges, one from each dugout, in their 7-4 victory over the Rockies on Saturday.
The first challenge was issued by Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, his first since May 31. It came in the third inning, when Roenicke asked the umpires to review a play at first base in the third inning. With Josh Rutledge at first base after a leadoff single, DJ LeMahieu lined out to Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett, who threw to first in an effort to double-up Rutledge.
The throw beat the runner but struck him on the arm and bounced at the feet of Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay. He quickly picked it up and applied a tag, but it was ruled too late by first-base umpire CB Bucknor.
Roenicke challenged that call, and after a review of 1 minute, 42 seconds, it was overturned. After consulting with the Elias Sports Bureau, official scorer Tom O'Driscoll ruled the Brewers did not get credit for a double play.
The second challenge came in the eighth inning, when Rockies manager Walt Weiss challenged a ruling that Troy Tulowitzki had been caught stealing at second base.
The challenge came when Charlie Culberson was batting, with Drew Stubbs on second base and Tulowitzki on first with two outs in the inning. On the first pitch of the at-bat, against Milwaukee's Will Smith, the runners attempted a double steal, and catcher Jonathan Lucroy threw to second base to throw out Tulowitzki.
Tulowitzki was called out, and after a review of 2 minutes, 20 seconds, the officiating crew announced that the call on the field stood, ending the inning and the Colorado threat.
