ARLINGTON, Texas -- While manager Lloyd McClendon is no fan of the transfer rule, he certainly has no problem challenging the application of it to get the Seattle Mariners a run. Seattle had a six-run outburst in an inning that included three Texas errors and an overturned call that led to the ejection of Rangers manager Ron Washington during the Mariners 7-1 victory Monday night. Seattle had the bases loaded in the sixth, already with four runs in, when Brad Miller hit a comebacker. Relief pitcher Pedro Figueroa threw home, and umpire Paul Schrieber initially ruled a forceout even though catcher J.P. Arencibia bobbled the ball on a transfer without dropping it or making a throw. McClendon challenged, and the call was reversed after a replay review of 3 minutes, 31 seconds. That erased the out and gave Seattle another run. "I thought it was a clear violation of the rules," McClendon said. "It was an impactful play." Asked his feeling on the transfer rule, which is being enforced more closely with expanded replay this season, the manager responded, "I wish it would all go away, but it is what it is, and we just have to deal with it." Arencibia, charged with an error, said he was off the plate before losing control of the ball. "I think thats something that baseball needs to clean up because there are a lot of plays that have happened this year that are outs and giving teams extra outs," Arencibia said. "I dont think its baseball. Outfielders who have caught the ball and run four steps after they catch it, run into the wall and turn and throw the ball in and it falls out, and automatically safe. It doesnt make sense." Roenis Elias (1-1) allowed one run and struck out five over 6 2-3 innings for his first major league victory. The left-hander, who defected from Cuba to Mexico in 2010, has a 2.16 ERA in three career starts. "I came here to make it to the big leagues. I knew I could pitch in the big leagues," Elias said through a translator. "I was throwing my pitches like I wanted. The curveball I threw today is what I normally throw." The Mariners went ahead to stay on Mike Zuninos solo homer in the fifth off Colby Lewis (0-1), who made his first big league start in 21 months after elbow and hip operations. Zunino added an RBI single in that wild sixth that started with Robinson Canos leadoff single. Cano scored on Michael Saunders triple to left-centre -- a ball that centre fielder Leonys Martin bobbled without getting charged with an error. Kyle Seager followed with an RBI single that chased Lewis, and then things got interesting. Dustin Ackley and Zunino had consecutive RBI singles after Arencibia couldnt pull in a foul ball before reaching out and teetering over a camera-well railing. Mix in two fielding errors, and the bases were loaded. Washington immediately came out to argue after the overturned call and was ejected by crew chief Ted Barrett because managers arent allowed to argue replay rulings. Washingtons ejection came a night after Boston manager John Farrell became the first big league skipper tossed under those circumstances this season. "It was obvious he caught the ball, the runner was at least 9 or 10 feet from home plate, making his move away from home plate so he dont have contact, you go to get the ball and he drops it," Washington said. "Im all for the review, but still that dont mean you have to agree with some of the calls that go on because of review." Umpires in New York confirmed the play was overturned because Arencibia never had secure possession while transferring the ball from his glove to his hand. Lewis made his first major league start since July 18, 2012, allowing four runs (three earned) over 5 1-3 innings. He struck out four and walked one. The 34-year-old Lewis had right hip resurfacing surgery last August. He is the first known major league pitcher to come back after the procedure to remove bone spurs without a full hip replacement. "Id like to thank the Texas Rangers and the organization for giving me an opportunity tonight. It wouldnt have meant as much for me to get back out there without having this uniform on," Lewis said. "Overall, I felt great. Everything was really, really good." NOTES: Seattle had gone 21 consecutive innings without a run before Zuninos third homer. ...

The third-seeded Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., was coming off a semifinal appearance at the French Open. She took the opening set before the unseeded American came back for the 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory.Davi Millsaps went into the Monster Energy Cup with low expectations, treating it almost as a warm-up for the Supercross season.Of course he wanted to win the race — all riders do — but after spending 18 months away from racing because of injuries and running with a new team for the first time, getting a feel for racing again was the main priority.Turned out to be some warm-up.By taking the final moto and finishing top-5 in the other two, Millsaps won the Monster Energy Cup in October, earning a $100,000 paycheque while giving his Supercross season a huge kick-start.Honestly, it was a surprise to myself and everyone else, Millsaps said. But it was a really good race.The 17-race Supercross season kicks off Saturday at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California. The schedule also includes a stop at Levis Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, races in consecutive weekends in Atlanta and a switch from Qualcomm Stadium to Petco Park in San Diego.Once the first gate drops, Millsaps will be one of the favourites in what could be the most wide-open season to date.Ryan Villopoto, the four-time defending Supercross champion, retired from the series and went to race in Europe to compete for the FIM Motocross World Championship. Two-time champion James Stewart also will be missing after being suspended 16 months for a failed drug test.That leaves two riders who have previously won Supercross titles: Ryan Dungey and two-time champion Chad Reed.Millsaps finished second in 2012 and 2013, and is healthy again, so he will likely have a say in the championship race. Trey Canard is one of the series best young riders and was in line for a $1 million payday before wrecking in the final moto at the Monster Energy Cup, so expect to see him competing for a title.Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen also will be back and a new crop of talented riders will be makking the jump from the 250cc series, including Blake Baggett, who will race for Yoshimura Suzuki with Stewart out.ddddddddddddWe say it every year, but I think this year is going to be incredible, said Dave Prater, director of Supercross for AMA Supercross. It should be wide open.Millsaps put his name in the mix by winning the Monster Energy Cup, but it was a long road back to get there.After finishing second in the 2013 Supercross season, he underwent surgery to fix a lingering knee injury, basically having his leg strengthened to prevent needing knee replacement surgery.The 26-year-old rider from Orlando, Florida, was out for nearly four months, then broke his foot and dislocated his ankle. Once Millsaps came back from that, he tore up his other knee and needed surgery.As he started riding again, his foot continued to hurt, so he had surgery to try fixing it. Then another. And another.It was miserable. Just the fact that every time I thought I fixed it, it came back, Millsaps said. Its definitely hard mentally to get past it.The final surgery finally fixed Millsaps foot and he was able to start riding outdoors in July. He also left Rockstar Energy Racing for Monster Energy Kawasaki, essentially filling the spot left by Villopotos departure.Millsaps had less than a month with his new team before the Monster Energy Cup and missed part of that time because he got sick, but meshed quickly.The team was already a well-oiled machine after winning four Supercross titles with Villopoto and Millsaps made a seamless transition, finishing third and fourth the first two races before taking the final moto and the big paycheque.Basically two years off a motorcycle, jump on a brand new one and win your first race, with everyone there really is really impressive, Prater said. You can never write Davi off. He seems to get better with age. ' ' '
