NEW YORK -- Cubs manager Rick Renteria won a challenge, but he lost a second an inning later.

In the Mets' fourth inning, Renteria challenged whether Matt den Dekker had stole second, and the call was overturned.

With two outs in the fourth, starter Kyle Hendricks walked den Dekker, who broke for second. The Cubs felt catcher Welington Castillo had thrown den Dekker, out but he was initially called safe by second-base umpire Phil Cuzzi. Chicago's Javier Baez motioned to the dugout, and Renteria asked for a review. After less than one minute, the call was overturned to end the inning.

With the Mets holding a 1-0 lead and two outs in the Chicago fifth, Baez hit a ball to shortstop Wilmer Flores, who was on the left side of the infield for a defensive shift. First-base umpire Adrian Johnson called Baez out, but Renteria challenged the call. After a review that lasted less than 30 seconds, Baez was called out and the play ruled as stands.

The Cubs are now 19-26 on replays. They fared better in the game, beating the Mets, 4-1, to split the series.
