DETROIT -- Already holding a commanding lead, Rangers manager Ron Washington opted to challenge the ruling on the field that Mitch Moreland's hit in the sixth inning landed in foul territory.

After a review of two minutes and 20 seconds, the call was overturned as replay showed that the ball landed on the left-field foul line. Moreland was awarded a double, and Elvis Andrus, who was on second base, was allowed to score. Texas' lead was extended to 9-2.

Moreland ended up being the second-to-last batter faced by Tigers starter Justin Verlander. He was replaced after issuing a walk to Adrian Beltre. Verlander allowed 11 hits and nine runs, six earned, in 5 1/3 innings.
