ST. PETERSBURG -- Rays manager Joe Maddon said he had nothing to lose by challenging the out call at first base in his team's half of the ninth inning during a 5-3 loss to the Orioles on Tuesday night.
"Why not?" Maddon said. "I had an opportunity to find out without question if he [Hanigan] was out or safe."
It took just 47 seconds to confirm the umpire's call that Hanigan was out.
