SEATTLE -- The Rangers were hoping instant replay would deliver Tomas Telis' first Major League hit and RBI. That didn't turn out to be the case.

Telis, called up from Triple-A Round Rock on Monday to make his Major League debut, came to the plate with the bases loaded and two outs in the fourth inning. The Rangers were leading 1-0 at the time.

Telis hit a slow grounder to the right side that Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano fielded going to his left on the outside grass. He did a full turn and fired to first baseman Logan Morrison, who appeared to adjust his feet reaching for the bag, to get Telis for the third out of the inning.

Manager Ron Washington challenged the call, but it stood upon replay.
