DENVER -- The Rockies got a reprieve in the second inning when a call at first base was overturned by an instant-replay challenge.

With two out in the inning and the Rockies leading, 2-0, DJ LeMahieu hit a bouncer to Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre, whose high throw caused first baseman Prince Fielder to leap and attempt to tag LeMahieu.
