Rays Win Second Challenge In Two Days

In the top of the second inning Robinson Chirinos [1] of the Texas Rangers sent a ground ball bounding toward centerfield. Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar [2] stabbed it, wheeled, and fired a bullet to first baseman James Loney [3]. The umpire called Chirinos safe and Joe Maddon [4] came out and eventually challenged the call. After approximately a minute and a half delay the umpires returned to the field and switched the call to out at first.

It was the second time in two days that the Rays had a call overturned in their favor. During Friday’s game a soft line drive that Wil Myers [5] made a sliding grab of was ruled a trap and overturned to an out (LINK [6]).
