"We were in Toronto and there was a ball that hit the middle of the wall and they checked it," second baseman Ian Kinsler said. "I just think that now that we have that tool available, I just think that if it's anywhere close, that they should check it."Yeah, it does stop the game for a minute. But it's better to check it and get it right." It proved costly as the Rangers failed to score in the inning. Nelson Cruz flied out to right field, advancing Hamilton to third, but Justin Smoak and Matt Treanor both grounded out to end the inning. A home run would have won the game for the Rangers, but Texas had to play a full nine innings before walking off for a 4-3 win over the Orioles on a sacrifice fly by Cruz. "They missed it. There is no reason for me to go into it," third baseman Michael Young said. "Umpires aren't perfect. Obviously, we have a replay system in place, but they chose not to look at it. Not much we can do about it. "They said it was a home run, they missed a call, that's it. I recognize that's not an easy call, that's not an easy read for an umpire. Fortunately, we won the ballgame and don't have to worry about it."
