OAKLAND -- Tigers manager Brad Ausmus successfully challenged an out call by first-base umpire Paul Emmel in the top of the second inning of Wednesday's game against the Oakland Athletics.
J.D. Martinez was originally ruled out on the back end of a double play that would have ended the inning. After a replay of a minute and 49 seconds, the call was overturned as it was determined that Martinez was safe, and the inning continued with Alex Avila grounding out to second base.
The A's were on the winning end of a replay challenge themselves in the top of the ninth inning after Miguel Cabrera was ruled safe at second in his attempt to stretch a hit into a double. A's manager Bob Melvin challenged the call, and replay review overturned the call, ruling Cabrera out to end the inning.
