TORONTO -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter got mixed results on a pair of challenges in the seventh and eighth innings of Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

Showalter won a challenge in the bottom of the seventh inning when Colby Rasmus was initially ruled safe after hitting a two-out grounder to first.

Chris Davis made a diving stab and dished the ball to pitcher T.J. McFarland, who hustled to cover the bag and tagged Rasmus before he could cross. First-base umpire D.J Reyburn originally called Rasmus safe on the play, prompting Showalter to leave the dugout and challenge the call. After review, the call was overturned and the inning was over.

In the eighth, with Munenori Kawasaki standing on first following a leadoff single, McFarland attempted a pickoff.

A diving Kawasaki appeared to evade the tag from Davis and was ruled safe, bringing Showalter out to challenge again. This time the call on the field would stand.

And in the bottom of the eighth, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons got in on the action. With no outs and runners on first and second, Jose Reyes grounded into a 4-6-3 double play. Gibbons thought Reyes had beat the throw to first and came out to challenge. But upon review, the call on the field would stand.
