OAKLAND -- A's manager Bob Melvin won a replay challenge in the top of the 10th inning on Tuesday to help keep the score tied at 2 before the Astros won it, 3-2, in the 12th inning.
Jose Altuve broke early from first base with one out in the 10th, and he was called safe on Dan Otero's throw. But the evidence suggested otherwise -- Nick Punto had tagged Altuve in time -- and the call was overturned.
"They were aggressive on the bases," Melvin said. "We did all right in that fashion, we just came up one run short and a couple big hits short."
