Panik confirmed safe after Phillies' challenge

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Phillies lost a replay challenge in the eighth inning Sunday at AT&T Park.

Giants second baseman Joe Panik stepped to the plate with Gregor Blanco on second and singled to right field. Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd threw home, but Blanco was held at third. Carlos Ruiz then threw to second as Panik tried to take the extra base. Second-base umpire Alan Porter called Panik safe, but Jimmy Rollins thought his tag beat him to the bag.

Umpires took approximately two minutes, one second to confirm the call on the field.
