ARLINGTON -- A's manager Bob Melvin successfully challenged two calls in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers at Globe Life Park.

Melvin erased a Rangers baserunner in the fourth inning and another in the seventh.

First-base umpire D.J. Reyburn initially ruled Texas' J.P. Arencibia safe on Jason Hammel's pickoff attempt at first base with one out in the fourth, but the call was overturned in less than a minute after review.

Then, in the seventh, Reyburn called Alex Rios safe at first after a tremendous play by second baseman Eric Sogard with two outs. That call, too, was overturned, ending the inning.

Melvin has won 12 of his 19 challenges this year.
