Tigers split the difference on two replay overturns, and see a net gain

DETROIT — You win some, you lose some.

The Tigers split the difference in replay reviews being overturned in Saturday's game against the Angels.

The one that went in their favor cost them. The one that went against them did not.

Miguel Cabrera was initially called out when he tried to take an extra base in the third inning, testing the arm of Mike Trout in center field. Replays showed Cabrera — who’d reached on an error, when Brennan Boesch dropped his fly ball — slid in to third base before the tag. One batter later, Cabrera trotted home on Austin Jackson’s MLB-best fourth sacrifice fly.

In the bottom of the fourth, Ian Stewart was called out trying to steal second, and both teams trotted off the field, before manager Mike Scioscia challenged the call. It, too, was overturned, continuing the inning, but Max Scherzer pitched around it, striking out Erick Aybar.
