NEW YORK -- Yankees manager Joe Girardi unsuccessfully challenged a ruling at first base in the bottom of the fifth inning of Thursday's series finale against the Rangers.

One play after Francisco Cervelli doubled in the go-ahead run off Rangers starter Colby Lewis, Brendan Ryan dropped down a sacrifice bunt.

Third baseman Adrian Beltre charged and threw to first, where second baseman Rougned Odor -- running over late -- received the throw while sliding feet first toward the bag, gracefully catching the ball as his legs grazed over the bag. Ryan was called out by first-base umpire CB Bucknor.

The play was close enough that Girardi challenged, and after 1 minute, 44 seconds, the ruling was confirmed as the first out of the inning. Cervelli, who moved to third on the bunt, later scored on a Brett Gardner sacrifice fly to give the Yankees a 3-1 lead.
