ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays got into a brief skirmish after a pickoff play at second base Saturday night.

The benches and bullpens emptied in the fourth inning after the play, which also resulted in a manager’s replay challenge.

Tampa Bay’s Asdrubal Cabrera made a headfirst dive back to the bag and second baseman Adam Rosales appeared to block him.

It appeared Rosales’ elbow might have made contact with Cabrera. Miffed, Cabrera used his forearm to push away Rosales.

Texas challenged the safe call, which was confirmed after a wait of 3 1/2 minutes.
