V-Mart out at first stands after Tigers' challenge

CLEVELAND -- A play challenged by the Tigers during Wednesday's game with the Indians stood as called.

In the the sixth inning, Detroit bench coach Gene Lamont initiated a managerial challenge when designated hitter Victor Martinez was called out at first on a grounder to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. Manager Brad Ausmus had been ejected at the plate during the previous at-bat, along with first baseman Miguel Cabrera.

After a brief replay review, the ruling on the field was upheld. Martinez was out and the inning was over, with the Tigers stranding men on first and second.
