Rangers lose challenge, benefit from crew-chief review
Overturned call in seventh helps Lewis get out of inning
By Jackson Alexander / MLB.com
KANSAS CITY -- Rangers manager Ron Washington lost a challenge Monday night that could have potentially gained his team a run.
Washington challenged the ruling on catcher Tomas Telis' inning-ending double play in the top of the second. Telis rolled a grounder to Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar with runners on the corners and one out. Escobar flipped to second for the force, then Omar Infante relayed to first, just beating Telis.
Replay officials in New York ruled that first-base umpire Rob Drake's call would stand and the score remained, 1-0, Kansas City.
The Rangers benefited from a crew-chief review in the bottom of the seventh.
Jarrod Dyson smacked a leadoff double to right, but he overran second base and had to scamper back to the bag. First baseman Adam Rosales, trailing the play, met him there, but second-base umpire Fieldin Culbreth deemed that Dyson avoided Rosales' tag.
The umpires initiated a crew-chief review, and officials in New York overturned the call.
Lewis retired the next two batters for a scoreless seventh.
