Rangers, Royals each lose replay challenge

ARLINGTON -- Rangers manager Ron Washington lost his fourth straight challenge during the seventh inning of Saturday's game against the Royals.

With runners on second and third, Jarrod Dyson lined an Alex Claudio offering into center for a two-run single to give the Royals a 6-1 lead. Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin fired home, attempting to throw out Lorenzo Cain, who slid in safely.

Washington promptly walked out of the dugout to challenge the play, but the call was confirmed after just a 35-second review. It was the second-shortest review for a play challenged by Washington this year, eclipsed only by 20 seconds for a play Washington challenged in last Friday's loss to the Angels.

After getting the call reversed on 17 of his first 27 challenges, Washington is now 0-for-4 since his last successful challenge on Aug. 9.

Earlier in the game, Royals manager Ned Yost challenged a safe call on Elvis Andrus' stolen base in the Rangers' sixth inning and lost.

An instant replay review in New York confirmed that Andrus was safe on catcher Erik Kratz's throw to second baseman Omar Infante. That gave Yost a 19-12 record in reviews this season.
