Gibbons came out of the dugout, and the Blue Jays decided to challenge the call because they felt Lawrie tagged Cabrera's left foot before his other leg hit the bag.
"We went off Brett's reaction, really," Gibbons said. "I was surprised by it. This is not a perfect science. … They make that call in New York."
The umpires convened, and after two minutes and 35 seconds it was ruled that the call on the field stood.
