The Detroit Tigers, who are neck-and-neck with the Seattle Mariners for the final Wild Card spot in the American League with the Seattle Mariners, benefited from instant replay in their 8-6 win in 11 innings over the Tampa Bay Rays on Aug. 19.

The Detroit Tigers beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 8-6, on Aug. 19.

It was a much-needed win for the Tigers, who clawed back from a 4-0 deficit, per The Detroit Free Press' George Sipple:

"Grant Balfour gave up a bases-loaded walk to Victor Martinez with none out in the top of the 11th. The Detroit Tigers added a couple insurance runs and went on to beat the Rays, 8-6, in 11 innings tonight at Tropicana Field.

"Ian Kinsler led off the 11th with a triple to right field. Kinsler's line drive went off the glove of a diving Kevin Kiermaier. Balfour walked Torii Hunter on four pitches, then intentionally walked Miguel Cabrera to load the bases. Balfour fell behind 2-0 and 3-1 before walking Martinez.

"Lefty Jeff Beliveau replaced Balfour and struck out Ezequiel Carrera, but threw a wild pitch while facing Don Kelly that allowed Torii Hunter to score. Bryan Holaday added a sacrifice fly to center to score Cabrera.

"With two outs in the bottom of the 11th, Joe Nathan gave up a single to Ben Zobrist, a walk to Logan Forsythe and an RBI single to Evan Longoria.

"J.D. Martinez homered on a 1-0 pitch to center field off right-hander Joel Peralta to give the Tigers a 5-4 lead in the top of the eighth. It was the eighth time he has homered in the eighth inning or later for the Tigers.

"But the Rays tied the game in the bottom of the eighth off Joba Chamberlain.

"Chamberlain gave up a walk to Longoria and back-to-back singles to James Loney and Yunel Escobar to load the bases. Vince Belnome hit a sac fly to center to bring home Longoria, tying the game.

"The Tigers came back from a 4-0 deficit with three unearned runs in the fifth and one run in the sixth.

"Max Scherzer allowed four runs over the first 11 batters he faced. He allowed two more baserunners over the final 5 1/3 innings he pitched.

"Scherzer gave up a three-run home run to Loney in the first inning and an RBI single to Zobrist in the second inning.

"Scherzer had not given up more than three runs in a game since allowing 10 in an 11-4 loss to the (Kansas City) Royals on June 17. He had four consecutive quality starts before tonight's game." 

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus' challenges of Vince Belnome's home run in the fourth inning and Desmond Jennings' sliding catch in the fifth were ruled in Detroit's favor, per MLB.com's David Adler:

"Instant replay smile on the Tigers in their series opener against the Rays on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field. 

"First, a crew chief review saved Detroit a run, and later, manager Brad Ausmus' successful challenge notched the Tigers an extra run. 

"Leading off the bottom of the fourth inning with the Rays ahead, 4-0, Tampa Bay designated hitter Vince Belnome thought he belted his first Major League home run, as his fly ball down the right-field line and into the stands was called fair. 

"But Ausmus thought differently and went onto the field to discuss the matter with the umpiring crew led by Greg Gibson. That led to a review. 

"After 58 seconds passed, the call on the field was overturned. The ball was foul. Belnome then struck out for the first out for the first out in the fourth. 

"After 58 seconds passed, the call on the field was overturned. The ball was foul. Belnome then struck out for the first out of the fourth. 

"An inning later, Ausmus emerged from his dugout a second time, this time to discuss a potential RBI hit off the bat of Miguel Cabrera. 

"With runners on first and second, two outs and two runs already across in the frame, Cabrera laced a line drie into center field. But it was initially ruled that Desmond Jennings had come up with a sliding catch, which would have ended the inning. 

"Ausmus challenged, and replays showed Jennings had clearly trapped the ball. Upon further review, the call was overturned and Cabrera was credited with a single. Ian Kinsler, who had been on second, was awarded home, giving the Tigers their third run, and Torii Hunter, who had been on first, was placed on third base. 

 

"The next batter, Victor Martinez, struck out to end the inning, but Detroit had closed the four-run deficit to 4-3."

With the win, the Tigers upped their record to 67-56 (.545) and remain in second place in the American League Central behind the Royals. The Rays slipped to 61-64 (.488) to remain fourth in the AL East.
