Mikolas scrambled to recover and threw to first base. The throw was off target and to the inside part of first base. First-base umpire Will Little ruled Lowrie safe, but first baseman J.P. Arencibia protested that he tagged the runner as he went by before reaching the base.
Manager Ron Washington requested a review, and the call was overturned. Lowrie was out, but Donaldson went to second and scored on a double by Eric Sogard to give the Athletics a four-run lead.
