DETROIT (AP) — Umpires overturned a call at first base in the sixth inning of Detroit’s game against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday, the first time baseball’s expanded instant replay system has been used at Comerica Park.

Tyler Collins of the Tigers was initially called out at first, giving Kansas City a 4-6-3 double play. Detroit manager Brad Ausmus came out to talk to first base umpire Chris Conroy, and the play was then reviewed.

The crowd cheered its approval when the review began, and then again when a replay on the scoreboard showed Collins appeared to beat the relay to first.

The call was overturned after a delay officially announced at 3 minutes.
