MIAMI -- In a pivotal moment in Saturday's 2-1 Marlins victory, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke challenged a call that took away Milwaukee's tying run in the sixth inning with Miami leading, 1-0.

With runners at first and second and two outs, Mark Reynolds singled to left. Rather than throw home, where he knew he had no play from a spacious outfield, Christian Yelich threw to third, where Casey McGehee tagged out Carlos Gomez.

That took place before Ryan Braun -- the lead runner -- crossed home plate, meaning the run did not count and the score remained in Miami's favor.

"I was supposed to be the cutoff man on that play," McGehee said. "I knew we didn't have a play at the plate. I knew we weren't going to throw him out. I was more than anything trying to keep Gomez from going to third. [Yelich] was pretty heads up."

After a review of 40 seconds, the call was confirmed by home-plate umpire Brian O'Nora.

Milwaukee is now 5-4 on challenges.

"He didn't break it down," Roenicke said of Braun. "Obviously it's a shorter throw for the outfielder to get it to third with the timing of whether he would throw it home. It's going to be quicker going to third base, which makes it tough."
