Jennings called out on excellent defensive effort up the middle by Cano
ST. PETERSBURG -- Joe Maddon lost a challenge on a close call in the fourth inning of Monday afternoon's Mariners-Rays contest at Tropicana Field.
With two outs, Desmond Jennings hit a chopper up the middle over the head of pitcher Erasmo Ramirez. Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano ranged to his right, fielded the ball and made a quick throw to first for the third out. Maddon did not see the play in the same light as first-base umpire Tim Timmons, however, and the Rays' manager issued a challenge.
