D-backs lose challenge after fan catches foul ball

CINCINNATI -- The D-backs lost a manager's challenge in the ninth inning during Monday night's game against the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

With one out and a 1-1 count, the Reds' Todd Frazier hit a fly ball down the right-field line.

David Peralta raced towards the wall and a fan reached over the wall and caught the ball.

After discussing the play with first-base umpire Chris Guccione, D-backs manager Kirk Gibson challenged the call, claiming that Frazier should be ruled out on fan interference.

Following a review, the play stood as called, meaning that there was not clear and convincing evidence to overturn the call.

Frazier went on to strike out later in the at-bat.
