PHOENIX -- D-backs manager Kirk Gibson lost a replay challenge on a call in the bottom of the second inning against the Pirates on Saturday and was ejected shortly after.

Andy Marte hit a sinking line drive to Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen, who made a sliding grab. Marte was called out, but the D-backs believed the ball was trapped. After a short review, the call stood, meaning there was not sufficient evidence to confirm the ruling on the field or overturn it.

The D-backs couldn't make anything happen the rest of the inning, as Chase Anderson struck out looking to end the frame.

After the inning, home-plate umpire and crew chief Ron Kulpa ejected Gibson for arguing the call. It was the manager's third ejection of the season and 10th of Gibson's career.

Then in the bottom of the third inning there was a crew chief review after David Peralta hit a ball high off the center-field wall near the yellow home-run line. The ruling on the field was a double and, after a short review, the call was confirmed.

Gibson is 12-for-25 on replay challenges this season.
