Rangers lose review in eighth on play at third base

Mariners win replay challenge in second inning

ARLINGTON -- The Mariners won a replay challenge in the top of the second inning of Saturday night's rain-delayed game against the Rangers.

With runners on first and second and no outs, Logan Morrison hit a sharp grounder to first baseman Adam Rosales, who quickly threw to second base for a forceout. Shortstop Elvis Andrus relayed the ball to first where pitcher Nick Martinez was covering. First-base umpire Angel Hernandez called Morrison out, but Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon challenged the call.

Replays showed Morrison safe by a step, and after a 45-second review, the call was overturned. McClendon is now better than 50 percent (19-for-37, .514) on challenges this season.

The Rangers lost their challenge in the eighth inning. Manager Tim Bogar asked the umpires to review Logan Morrison's run-scoring single to see if Kyle Seager actually touched third base coming around to score from second. The umpires confirmed that he did.
