CLEVELAND -- The Tribe eventually scored its first run in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the White Sox after an out call was overturned by replay review.

In the seventh inning, Yan Gomes hit a sharp liner to left fielder Dayan Viciedo, who acted as though he had gotten his glove under the ball just before it hit the grass. The Indians dugout was skeptical that Viciedo had actually made the catch, so skipper Terry Francona decided to use his manager's challenge.

"Every time you have a chance, you might as well. You really have nothing to lose," Francona said. "Tonight, it gave us a chance to help us. I'd rather have that than nothing."

The initial ruling was overturned after one minute and 58 seconds, giving Gomes a base hit and putting a second Tribe runner on base with one out. David Murphy singled in the following at-bat and Jason Kipnis drew a bases-loaded walk, cutting the deficit to 3-1, before Asdrubal Cabrera struck out to strand three men on base.

"Yeah, we had the opportunity," said Michael Brantley, who scored Cleveland's only other run on an eighth-inning solo shot. "This is baseball, though. You're not going to always capitalize. Our job is to keep getting those opportunities as much as possible."

With the overturned call, Francona is now 11-for-21 on manager's challenges this season.
