TORONTO -- The Blue Jays are now 0-5 when challenging calls under Major League Baseball's new replay review regulations.

Toronto manager John Gibbons appealed the call on the field when the Orioles' Jonathan Schoop was awarded first base after it appeared he had been hit by a pitch from Blue Jays reliever Esmil Rogers in the eighth inning of Thursday night's 11-4 Orioles victory at the Rogers Centre.

Rogers' errant fastball went high and inside on Schoop, who took the pitch off his left hand. The Blue Jays contended that the ball first struck the end of bat.

The umpires reviewed the play and ruled that the call on the field stood, meaning there was no conclusive evidence to overturn it.
