TORONTO -- Jose Reyes came within an inch or two of a home run during the second inning of Thursday night's game against the White Sox, but replays held him to a triple.

Reyes hit a ball off the top of the wall in right-center field. The ball took a high bounce before settling into the glove of outfielder Moises Sierra as Reyes easily cruised into third.

Toronto manager John Gibbons then went onto the field to ask for the umpires to take a closer look at the play. Crew chief Fieldin Culbreth agreed and, following a review of two minutes and two seconds, the call was confirmed.

Reyes settled for an RBI triple and was stranded at third when Melky Cabrera grounded out to second base.

Toronto didn't get any luckier with the replay system in the eighth. Infielder Steve Tolleson hit a grounder to third base and Conor Gillaspie made a rather weak throw across the diamond. That gave Tolleson a chance to beat it out, but first-base umpire Manny Gonzalez ruled him out.

Gibbons immediately asked for a review and, following a review of three minutes and 29 seconds, the call stood. That meant there wasn't sufficient video evidence to overturn the ruling on the field.
