CHICAGO -- The Tigers lost a replay challenge Saturday night when manager Brad Ausmus unsuccessfully appealed an out call on Andrew Romine's ground ball leading off the sixth inning, with Detroit leading, 5-0.

Romine hit a ground ball up the middle that White Sox second baseman Carlos Sanchez fielded and threw against his momentum to Paul Konerko at first base. Umpire Laz Diaz ruled that Sanchez's throw beat Romine to the bag.

Ausmus immediately came out of the dugout and asked for a replay review. After two minutes and six seconds, the call stood.

It was Ausmus' 32nd challenge this season. He has won 19 of them.
