Francisco then made a stabbing dive to third base as Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos attempted to go in with a head-first slide. Third-base umpire Dale Scott called Chirinos safe but Gibbons used a challenge after taking a couple of steps onto the field.
The replays showed that Francisco's glove touched the bag for a force out just before Chirinos touched the base. The call on the field was then overturned following a review of two minutes and 57 seconds.
The ruling marked the fifth time this season the Blue Jays have won a challenge. The timing of this one was rather crucial as it ended the inning and kept Toronto within two runs.
