Gardenhire gets out call at first overturned in seventh
Dozier scores tying run after close play leading off inning is reviewed

CHICAGO -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire successfully challenged a seventh-inning call by first-base umpire Gary Cedarstorm on Friday night.
Brian Dozier was called out on a grounder to third, but Gardenhire asked for a replay review, and after three minutes and 10 seconds, the call was overturned.
Dozier was leading off the inning with the Twins trailing, 6-5. After reaching second and third on consecutive groundouts, he scored the tying run on Kurt Suzuki's single.
Gardenhire's challenges have been overturned 13 times in 25 attempts. He was thrown out of the game on Tuesday against the Royals after questioning a ruling following a review.
In the ninth inning, White Sox manager Robin Ventura challenged Cedarstorm's call, when Dozier was ruled safe on a groundout that ricocheted off pitcher Jake Petricka.
The call was confirmed after a 50-second review. Dozier scored on a Suzuki fielder's choice three batters later, trimming the White Sox lead to 10-8, which became the final score.
