HOUSTON -- After coming up on the short end of a pair of replay reviews in the ninth inning on Wednesday, Astros manager Bo Porter successfully challenged a call at first base in the sixth inning on Thursday, saving a run.

With the Astros leading, 4-2, the Rangers had a runner at second base and two outs when Rougned Odor hit a roller on the right side of the infield. Astros starter Collin McHugh fielded the ball right on the line and touched the bag at nearly the same time as Odor, who was called safe, and Daniel Robertson scored.

Porter challenged and got the call overturned when the replay showed that McHugh's right foot touched the base just before Odor's right foot. That was the third out of the inning, and the run was erased.

The Astros have been successful in 17 of their 28 challenges this season.
