KANSAS CITY -- Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon lost a challenge on an infield single by the Royals' Jarrod Dyson in the ninth inning of Seattle's 7-5 win on Friday night at Kauffman Stadium.

After a two-run top of the ninth, sparked by Brad Miller's go-ahead homer, gave the Mariners a two-run lead, McClendon asked for a review of first-base umpire Scott Barry's call that Dyson beat out an infield to single to first base to lead off the Royals' ninth.

Replay officials in New York deemed Barry's ruling to stand as Dyson appeared to step on first base before Mariners closer Fernando Rodney got to the bag. Rodney gave up a one-out single to Eric Hosmer before inducing a forceout by pinch-hitter Nori Aoki and striking out Alex Gordon for the save.
