CHICAGO -- A pair of reviewed calls went in the Orioles' favor on Saturday at Wrigley Field, but the Cubs prevailed with a 7-2 victory in a game that saw a three-hour, nine-minute rain delay.

A seventh-inning crew-chief review regarding MLB rule 7.13 that prohibits catchers from blocking the plate without possession of the ball confirmed umpire Chris Segal's call that Anthony Rizzo was out at home.

With one out in the seventh and a 6-2 Chicago lead, Rizzo tried to score on Ryan Sweeney's grounder to first, but first baseman Steve Pearce threw to catcher Nick Hundley, who tagged Rizzo.

Rizzo had doubled with no outs and reached third when pinch-hitter Matt Szczur grounded out to short. The review lasted one minute, 20 seconds.

Cubs manager Rick Renteria challenged a call in the eighth when Logan Watkins was ruled out at third on a 5-3-5 double play. The call stood after a two minute, eight second review.
