NEW YORK -- Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez gambled and lost when he challenged a close play at second base during the fourth inning of Tuesday night's game against the Mets at Citi Field.

Gonzalez requested a review after Travis d'Arnaud doubled to begin the bottom of the fourth inning against Alex Wood. The Braves skipper took a chance that d'Arnaud had lost contact with the second-base bag as he slid head first while attempting to avoid the tag Tommy La Stella applied after receiving Justin Upton's throw from second base.

Replays showed that d'Arnaud's right hand did come off the bag. But it was not clear whether his legs were off the bag at the same moment. Thus after a review that lasted two minutes and 39 seconds, the umpires revealed that call stood.

Juan Lagares followed with a two-run home run that gave the Mets a 3-1 lead.

The Braves have been successful with 19 of the 28 replay reviews they have requested.
