ANAHEIM -- Jose Reyes was called out at first base in the third inning of Tuesday night's 4-0 Blue Jays win over the Angels after a video review overturned a safe call when he strayed too far off the bag following a single to right field.

With one out, Reyes dropped an 0-1 fastball from Angels lefty Tyler Skaggs into shallow right field and made a wide turn around first base. Charging in hard, Kole Calhoun fielded the ball and fired to Albert Pujols at first, who applied the tag as Reyes dove back head first.

Home-plate umpire David Rackley, trailing the runner on an umpires' shift, ruled that Reyes beat the tag and Pujols immediately motioned to manager Mike Scioscia to challenge the call.

Replays showed Pujols' glove tagging Reyes on the ribs before his hand made contact with the bag and the call was overturned, making the Angels 9-for-17 in challenges this season.

Reyes' single was Toronto's fourth hit of the game but the score was 0-0 after three innings.

The Angels were also on the winning side of a challenge by Toronto's John Gibbons in the seventh inning.

Erick Aybar grounded a ball deep into the hole at short, where Reyes gathered the ball and threw to first. Aybar beat the throw, which was confirmed by a video review.
