SEATTLE -- An out call at home plate was confirmed using Major League Baseball's instant-replay policy in Sunday's rubber game between the Mariners and Tigers at Safeco Field.
Leading 1-0 with two outs and runners on first and third, the Mariners attempted a double steal in the third inning with first baseman Justin Smoak batting.
After manager Lloyd McClendon challenged the out, the call was confirmed following a one-minute, 19-second review.
