DENVER -- For the second straight day, Rockies manager Walt Weiss lost a challenge that could have potentially plated another Charlie Blackmon run.

With the Rockies trailing the Twins, 5-4, in the fourth, Carlos Gonzalez took off on a dropped third strike on a ball that trickled away from catcher Kurt Suzuki down the third-base line. But first-base umpire Chris Guccione ruled that Suzuki's throw made it to first in time for the final out of the frame.

Gonzalez waved himself safe as he cross the bag and Blackmon was on his way home from second on the play so Weiss decided to try his luck and challenge.

After a one-minute, two-second review, the officiating crew confirmed that Gonzalez was out on the bang-bang play.

Weiss also lost a challenge Saturday that involved Blackmon trying to cross home plate. Blackmon was called out on a terrific scoop and catch from Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, but Weiss felt catcher Eric Fryer was illegally blocking the base. The replay review confirmed Blackmon's original out call with Fryer not putting his knee down in front of home until after he received the ball.
