PHOENIX - Indians manager Terry Francona lost a replay challenge in the first inning of Tuesday's game against the D-backs.

With runners on first and second, D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt hit a ground ball to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who attempted to start a 6-4-3 double play. However, first baseman Carlos Santana's foot came off the bag when he received the throw.

Goldschmidt was called safe, and first-base umpire Chad Fairchild's call stood after the review.

One batter later, the D-backs took a 1-0 lead on a double by catcher Miguel Montero. Goldschmidt did not come around to score in the inning.

Because he lost the challenge, Francona was unable to request one in the Indians' four-run second inning when pitcher Justin Masterson appeared to be safe at first after his soft grounder to third, but was called out for the second out of the inning.
