MINNEAPOLIS -- The White Sox successfully challenged what was originally ruled a double by the Twins' Brian Dozier on Saturday at Target Field.

With Andre Rienzo pitching in the bottom of the third inning, Dozier led off with a bloop hit over third baseman Conor Gillaspie, and he then tried to stretch the play into a double. Left fielder Alejandro De Aza's throw was on target, but second baseman Gordon Beckham's tag appeared to be late.

Second-base umpire Mark Wegner called Dozier safe, and White Sox manager Robin Ventura decided to challenge the play.

Closer review showed that Beckham's tag caught Dozier's foot before the runner reached the base, and the call was overturned. Down 2-1 at the time, Minnesota went from having a leadoff double to one out and no one on base, and subsequent flyouts by Joe Mauer and Kendrys Morales ended the inning. The Twins went on to win, 4-3.

The review took 46 seconds.
