Rays score on successful challenge

Houston -- Rays manager Joe Maddon successfully challenged a play in the sixth inning of Sunday's game against the Astros, resulting in the game-tying run for the Rays.

Maddon contested a call that ruled Desmond Jennings was out at first on a double-play throw. The call was overturned, and Jose Molina, who was on third base, scored on the play, tying the game at 3-3.

Maddon has challenged eight calls so far this year. Sunday's was his second successful challenge.

The inning ended on the next batter, as Kevin Kiermaier flew out to center.
