CINCINNATI -- Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez successfully challenged a play on a shallow fly ball to left field in the top of the third inning of the Braves' series opener against the Reds at Great American Ball Park Thursday night.

With the Braves leading 1-0, Jason Heyward led off the frame by hitting the looper into short left, where Skip Schumaker charged and made a diving attempt to catch it. The play was initially ruled a catch by third-base umpire Jeff Nelson.

The call was overturned upon replay evidence that the ball was trapped by Schumaker and Heyward was ruled safe at first with a single.

Heyward eventually came around to score on a two-run single by Justin Upton.
