Melvin loses challenge in game vs. Astros

HOUSTON -- A's manager Bob Melvin lost his challenge of a foul call on Brandon Moss' batted ball in the fifth inning of a 5-5 game in Houston.

With Josh Donaldson standing on first base, Moss lined a ball down the right-field line, and first-base umpire Jerry Meals ruled it was foul. Melvin challenged and, upon further review, the play stood as called, as the replay was inconclusive.

Moss found his way on base, anyway, ultimately singling against Brad Peacock.
