As Romine raced toward first, Schoop made a nice scoop and flung the ball to first baseman Steve Pearce in one motion. Pearce caught the ball almost right as Romine's outstretched right foot landed on first base while Avila was scoring from third.
First-base umpire Jim Wolf ruled Romine out, drawing Tigers manager Brad Ausmus out of the dugout to challenge the call. After a two-minute, 28-second review, the call on the field stood.
"I'm not sure what they saw. I know it's a tough play," Ausmus said during a mid-game interview on the TBS broadcast. "I don't understand the reasoning for not calling Romine safe, but we'll move on."
As a result, Ausmus lost his challenge for the rest of the game, which remained scoreless.
