But first-base umpire Ron Kulpa called Dye safe.
"I felt like I tagged him before he got to the base, I really don't have anything else to say," Aybar said through translator Dioner Navarro.
Kulpa didn't ask for help, but it was a moot point when Paul Konerko bounced into a double play.
"[Kulpa] had to rush to see the play, so I thought he would have asked for help because he didn't have a great view of the play," Aybar said. "But it was a [bang-bang] play, so there's nothing we can do about it."
