Jonny Gomes, running from second, tried to score as Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin made a strong throw home. But it was also a few feet to the first-base side of the plate. Catcher Robinson Chirinos had to grab the ball, then dive back to home to tag Gomes, who was sliding feet first.
Home-plate umpire James Hoye ruled safe. Rangers manager Tim Bogar appealed, but a replay review resulted in the call standing.
A single by Jed Lowrie made it 5-4, but Alberto Callaspo flied out to end the inning.
The Rangers also had an earlier replay review go against them Saturday, when Elvis Andrus was called safe at second on a steal attempt in the third inning. Oakland manager Bob Melvin challenged the call, and after review, the call was overturned for the second out of the inning.
