The Detroit Tigers replay review system was temporarily down during the team's game against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, according to the Associated Press' Larry Lage.

The video feed which allows the Tigers to look at plays and relay to manager Brad Ausmus whether they should be challenged went down during the first inning, at which point both managers were informed of the situation.

Crew chief Gary Cederstrom insisted he did not know how long Detroit's replay system was down, but said the Orioles were free to make use of their system while the Tigers' was not working.

"Everybody could do their challenges," Cederstrom said after Baltimore's 3-1 victory.

The problem was rectified by the following half inning, and no challenges were used in the game by either team, according to Mike Axisa of CBSSports.com.
